that finger I hurt trying to pull start my 4 wheeler? :pinch: :( Well it aint got no better and I finally went to the doc today. I'm having surgery tuesday. :angry: It seems I broke part of the last bone in my ring finger. The tendon is holding on to the broken part, which is what is keeping the tendon from retracting into my hand.

He is gonna try to reattach the broken bone and tendon. :pinch:

Here's a pic of my x-ray


That was a bad week for me. :huh: Looking forward to being able to use my finger again though.

    Yea, it healed fine. It's amazing the things you have to figure out how to do w/o your dominant hand. :whistle: :laugh:

    I hope they can fix it. Best wishes

    Thanks Beli, that was one of two injuries to that hand in two days. While cleaning one of Adam's knives, I guess I was favoring the sore ring finger and ended up cutting my index finger all the way to the bone. :pinch:

    Like I said, rough trip.
  • FiretruckFiretruck Posts: 2,679
    Doc was pretty hopeful although no guarantees. One thing for sure, if I do nothing, I will loose use of that finger.
  • 2Fategghead2Fategghead Posts: 9,623

  • I have thought I have broken mine before trying to do the same thing. Tough and a cold morning to crank start a 4 wheeler. Does this end your duck season?
