Turns out not so much. It stayed straight for less than a day and then developed brewer’s droop again.
I went to the plastic clinic this morning and was told I would be referred back into the medical side of it, rather than OT and PT, to discuss my options. They basically boil down to leave it along and get a frozen top joint and arthritis later on and not be able to clench a fist on that hand again. Or surgery. In which case, at least ten weeks recovery and maybe not back to full function anyway.
I am not surprised at being on the wrong side of the statistics AGAIN. Story of my life.
I’ve postponed the decision for six months. I am going off to work in the desert tomorrow. We are driving 2700km to Alice Springs where I will hopefully start my new job.
