It does get better, I recovered from my operation really quickly, three weeks in a cast and that was it. Avoid crowds etc for a while. But now I've got the pain back that I had before the operation, the tendon has flaired up again. Now I'm getting worried that I'll need another operation, having had my right hand operated on in the meantime for carpal tunnel syndrome. So thought it was over. Hopefully the week of painkillers will sort it out.
How are you getting on now?
