The nurse looked at it, today's bandage is a bandaid. I need to keep it dry so the stitches don't dissolve too soon.
I have almost the range of motion of my other fingers (which are limited by osteoarthritis), it feels like tendons need to be stretched out a little. No pain at all except a sore finger, if I do too much too soon it reminds me. Typing with both hands works fine. I am supposed to stretch it out starting tomorrow.

My husband just had his trigger finger operated on in France.(about 11/2 months ago) The finger was at a 90 degree angle. He had to have a nurse change the bandages during 2 weeks and then had to have physical therapy for 20 days. Maybe he waited too long - yours looks much better!! He's still doing some at-home exercises. Do you have some to do too, Lloyd?

How does your finger feel?

Still sore but improving

I have a trigger finger, pinky finger. It sticks way out, as of two years ago. Hand specialist told me I just had to live with it because operating on a diabetic hand was just too risky. So, this is interesting!
