I spent all day at the clinic

Worst possible outcome.

They want to treat it conservatively, which means I wear a splint for eight weeks. I can’t drive with a splint on as insurance won’t cover me. I asked about reconstructive surgery but even then I would still be splinted for the same length of time. So, of course I am going to choose the non-surgical approach. But get this: about a quarter of cases still end up needing surgery afterwards and another eight weeks of healing.

The company can’t hold my job for me and I think it unlikely I will be able to get any job. I can’t drive and office work is hampered because of the splint. Not to mention that most companies wouldn’t take somebody on who is already injured with an uncertain prognosis.

This is hitting me hard.
