|My problem ligament|
So the doctor said it was a good news, bad news situation.
Good news: I don't need surgery. This type of injury, even a tear, does not need to be fixed.
Bad news: This injury needs time to heal.
I am almost wishing it was broke so that it would heal faster. After dealing with Barry's suspensory injury I know just how long it can take. At least I have a definitive answer now and the doctor actually manipulated my hand. I only have to keep the two fingers taped to prevent lateral movement. Now if only I could prevent bumps and bends. I am glad I ditched the splint since the wrap was more what I needed anyway. So keep your fingers crossed that when I go back in 3 weeks, things are feeling better.
