Hello all of you, I have had CMC thumb surgery 9 months ago. I still have a lump under my incision where the thumb meets the wrist. Its hard as bone, and have been told it will go away with time. This lump interferes with the backward motion range of my thumb and makes my wrist stiff. I have been heating my hand daily using a hot pack, then stretching exercises with my hand and fingers, then all the PT exercises I was told to do. I still have problems typing, turning the ignition key on my truck, dexterity in starting bolts, and with all kinds of flexibility issues in my thumb and wrist. Have any of you had this problem? And does it go away? This is getting old real fast and Im at my witts end!

Thank you all,
daninflag

OH,,,,and by the way,,,,I haven't worked in 9 months, I a heavy equipment mechanic. They wont let me back to work until I have complete use of my hand, so that's why this thing is getting to me so much!
