In December, While working with my 3 year old on the longe line, some wind kicked up pretty good and he got fresh as babies do. Long story short i came out of it with a pretty jacked up broken right pinky finger. At least I’m left handed.
Anyway, I went to Urgent care, who decided it was sprained and not broken and immobilized it. Making it short again, first dr sent me to pt for about 6 weeks and said surgery was not warranted since it’s “bad but not bad enough” My response was well it’s not your hand.
I went to another dr for a second opinion since my finger looks like a claw and gets sore and swollen etc and is not healing.
On April 4 I am having a peripheral nerve block put into my neck to block the nerve to my pinky finger. After that I am having “aggressive” physical therapy every day for at least a week to “release” the calcification that has developed along the underside due to the initial incorrect treatment .
For what i’m learning, I wont be able to shower while it’s in (unless I can get DH to spray me with the attachment). Since I"m in Fl, that means I also have to keep horse/barn activities to a minimum so i don’t get sweaty and disgusting.
Has anyone has one of these things before and how did it go for you?
