    Default Right hand nerve and tendon damage. The road to recovery begins.

    This is the damage bill:
    Multiple injuries to wrist structure % damaged
    -FCR 100%
    -Radial vessels 100%
    -FPL 100%
    -Median Nerve 100%
    -FDS 100%
    -FDP 60%
    -APL 100%
    -PL 100%

    Four and a half hours of surgery. Was in hospital for 4 days and discharged on Tuesday.
    My arm is in a splint/sling for the next six weeks.
    I have started very light rehab work. At this stage can only curl my fingers one third of the way to my palm.

    In 12 weeks time I should have more of an indication on how well the recovery process will be.
    So at this stage looking at 12 to 18 weeks off work....possibly more. It could take up to 18 months to 2 years for full nerve recovery.
    Worst case scenario is limited finger movements and limited feeling in the finger tips.

    But I am keeping positive thoughts for a full recovery. It will be hard work.

    I think a positive mindset will be the biggest aid in your rehab mate! Stay consistent and persistent with the rehab, keep doing whatever training you can to stay in the routine. In the scheme of things a year ore two is a small portion of your training career.

    Thanks everyone,

    Swelling up a little in the hand yesterday but subsided a bit today. Have another appointment with orthopaedic on Tuesday.
    When I went in for my first appointment I couldn't believe how many people they have in the waiting room. There would have been 60 people at least all with some sort of hand/arm damage. And this was 8am on a thurs morning!

    Fingers loosening up ever so slightly.....its a weird feeling not having that full nerve sensation and control over them....yet.
    Its only 5 days since the op but no great discomfort....annoying typing one handed tho

    Stay positive, some days it will be hard, but in the long run you'll be sweet.
    Do all the rehab & dont rush back into anything

    Follow up today at the hospital just to check out the stitches and wound to make sure its not infected.everything checked ok..little bit red but of no real concern. Not sure how many stitches I had but counted about 40 when they removed the dressing around the wrist
    Still on antibiotics till tomorrow.
    Next appointment Thursday

    They will keep the stitches in for another week.
