trigger finger release surgery
firefly1961 posted:
had my middle finger done on 9/10/13. they took the stitches out on day 6 which started to open back up again. tried to keep sterile strips on best i could.i had shoulder surgery done at the same time. when i started therapy on my shoulder (10/3/13) i asked if she would help me with my finger because it doesn't feel right.i couldn't grasp things very well and it didn't feel included with the other fingers when i use them together.i have had the same therapist for 3 years due to 3 surgeries on the same shoulder so we work very well together. after trying to do different things with my finger/hand,my trigger finger is very sore and painful. the hardest thing i tried doing was to squeeze a ball. i have been playing with the silly putty stuff they gave me and other than that,just daily routines (without straining the finger) UNTIL i return to therapy and let her know how painful my hand got later that day and still. i say any exercise that doesn't hurt is good as long as you progress gradually. don't do anything extreme. good luck friends
