I had ligament reconstruction and tendon interposition (LRTI) surgery on my dominant right thumb last Thursday and this is the first time I've been able to let yet you know about it. My input to this forum will be limited in the immediate future.


I'm sorry. That would make typing extremely difficult. Are you experiencing pain?


I am sorry, friend. The hand is exceptionally sensitive and hand surgeries take a while to heal.

Good to know you are here reading for now.

@NevadaJack I wish you a swift and safe recovery, my fellow Silver Stater!

@NevadaJack Get that hand healed soon Jack, we need you for the action is really heating up. Good thing they make beer glasses for ambidextrous people mate.

@NevadaJack OUCH...I fell fracturing my non dominant thumb and tore the ligament as well. I had to keep the thumb immobile for EIGHT WEEKS. Needed therapy and home exercise for quite a while. I remember actually breaking out in a sweat when first starting to move that thumb. You’ve got your work cut out for you. Sorry.

@NevadaJack Wishing you a fast and complete recovery Jack.I was wondering why we hadnt seen you.Sounds painful,you tc of yourself ❤️

@NevadaJack I was wondering where you had gone. I hope everything is well and you heal up soon. 🙂 👍


thank you for your concern. it's going slow but i'll get there


Look up cold therapy, no pain pills and constant but slow progressive physical therapy. Without the pain pills, your body will tell you when to stop on the physical. Cold Therapy makes the internals heal much, much faster.

I had blown out my rotator and had the surgery to repair it.

Using the above, surgery on Wed evening, Physical Therapy start on Friday morning and cold therapy constant for 3 weeks. Back to limited work on Monday. 30 days full range of motion.


I pray you recover quickly. I'll miss your posts but look forward to your return.


Jack, I hope your recovery goes smoothly...💕🙏


Ouch! So very sorry to hear that. Hopefully your healing will go well and you'll be back up to snuff in no time. We'll wait right here for you, so no pushing yourself! Prayers up!


So sorry to hear about your thumb surgery.

Please take it easy and recuperate!

You are missed.

Feel better soon Jack. You will be missed until your return. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
