Both of my thumbs need this surgery. From what I've read, they should be fully mobile right after surgery. I've had 10 major surgeries in the past 10 yrs., including a liver transplant in 2011. I had complications with each of these surgeries, so have been holding off on the thumb surgeries, even though it's a simple surgery and it would be done by a hand specialist at Mayo. I'm using self-adhesive tape to splint them in the meantime, which the doctor recommended.
Mommie74, was the revision because surgery didn't work for that one finger? Were all of your fingers and thumbs done at the same time?
