Last Saturday I crashed on my bicycle avoiding a couple of dogs at the bottom of a long downhill. The worst of my injuries is a torn ligament between my thumb and forefinger on my right hand. I was in the drops when I hit the pavement and jammed my thumb against the handle bar, pushing it in the opposite direction of its normal bent. It requires surgery to reattach, which I'm scheduled to have next Monday. The orthopedic doctor gave me some very bad news about how this will effect the movement of my right thumb. He said I need physical therapy to do regular things like typing on a key board, so I'm very concerned how this will effect my ability to hit keys with my thumb. Has anyone here ever had this injury and how did you get back up to speed on the pipes after surgery? I hope the doctor was just giving me a worse case scenario.
