I have told everyone from family and friends to nurses and doctors that at this point in my recovery, if anyone decided they wanted to do surgery, I'd refuse. I thought that I was progressing well enough that surgery couldn't possibly make sense and would only set me back in therapy. I have two snowmobiling trips coming up in the next two months and want/need to get back to work.
I found it to be quite difficult to get lined up with an Ortho doctor for my follow up appointments, but eventually got set up for an appointment. That appointment was yesterday.
After looking at new X-rays, the doctor told me everything looked awesome and had basically healed as good as it could. I then informed him I had two fingers still completely numb, cold, and hard to move and a thumb that all together won't move. This is where after doing some investigation, the doctor told me I'd need surgery or essentially, I'd never regain full use of my left hand which means no chance of going back to my job.
I have to go through a couple of tests to make sure surgery will even fix the issue, but after the doctor explained it, it all makes too much sense to not go through with it.
Aside from that, everything is going great. It's almost all mental at this point and all of you have helped a ton with that. Sorry for being so drawn out, but thanks for the amazing support.
