Hi, thanks for your reply.
No, I'm not back at work yet, the consultant signed me off work for 8 weeks, so another 5 to go.
It doesnt feel too bad at the moment, I have a cast on and am able to use the fingers of that hand for some things. It does ache ocasionally, but thats to be expected.
I'm also finding that I am compensating with my other hand, I had surgery on that hand for a torn ligament 3 years ago, so am very conscious of overuse!
I see the consultant next week, so hopefully the cast will come off to be replaced with a softer splint.Then the physio can start and I can get back to normal, you never realise how much you need your hands until you can't!
Hope your feeling better soon.
