I had surgery on right fore finger with new joint. The doctor was totally aware that I was a custodian and that I am a very busy girl. I had the surgery February 18, 2020 it is now August 2 and it’s the worst thing I’ve ever done I’m in pain 24x7. He wants to go in and redo my surgery apparently I pulled a ligament. I’m scared to death to do this again. Then on top of that I got to have a three disc fusion in my neck.

@dklemme Welcome to BoneSmart! Have you had any physio post op? Are you icing your hand?

Can you get a second opinion from a hand surgeon with no connection to your current surgeon?

I agree with Jaycey that you need to get a second (and maybe a third) opinion before you have anything done. You might just be better off with someone besides your first doctor. You want someone who is VERY experienced in resolving problems. I'm not exactly following how a "pulled ligament" is causing you to need additional surgery.

Can you please provide some details about your recovery process?

* Was it troubled or pretty uneventful?
* How were your pain levels?
* Did you have therapy and what did it consist of?
* When did this current pain start?
* When did you return to work and was it at full activity level?
* What do you mean when you say you are "very active" and when did you start resuming normal activity?

Answers to these questions will help us to better support you.
