Thank goodness! After three separate visits to various doctors and specialists today and lots of hours of stress I got the good news. Of course I forgot to ask for the official diagnosis, but one of my tendons or something was moved by Gen which was causing the pain, swelling, and lack of mobility. They popped it back in place and while that was excruciating, I was promised that since that could happen nothing was torn. Yay! So I don’t need surgery 🙂
I was told it is going to be 6-8 weeks for a full recovery. Only 2 weeks though until I am feeling 50% better.
They don’t know when I am going to be able to bend my middle finger or my ring finger again, but they do think I am going to make a full recovery.
So what about riding and my show?!?! Well, the doctors all said no. When I asked what would happen if I did it anyway, they all agreed that I can’t do any more damage to my fingers. So it is up to me. It can’t get worse, so can I tough it out…
