This morning I got my cast off... What a great feeling. Letting the air hit my skin after being wrapped tight. At the same time the slightest movements seen sharp pains racing up my arm. 2 weeks ago I went in for the 8th surgery on my left arm. This time I had a side to side tendon transfer. In simple terms I hade the tendons of my middle/ring/pinky fingers tied together in 2 locations. I also received 3 donor tendons from an organ donor. The new tendons were woven though my existing tendons for strength. My arm officially looks like it was caught in a wood chipper.
I have a really uncomfortable brace for the time being & a lot of PT ahead of me before we can tell if the procedure worked.
