I had surgery on my left middle and index finger because it was cut through a glass but anyways, it's been a little less than a month and when do you think i can play sports again? especially volleyball. And now I can pretty much bend my fingers but I can't straighten them out. It's still swollen but it's pretty much gone.
specifically, the two finger joints of the pinky, the top joint of the ring finger, the central joint of the middle finger and sometimes the knuckle and central joint of the index finger. My thumb's central joint can be popped but causes no pain or tightness. Pressing my hand flat on a surface and forcing it to remain there causes tightness at the wrist and I can feel what can only be described as a 'spring effect' at the knuckles when I release.
I had to have both flexor tendons repaired in my right index finger. at about 6 weeks post op, im 99% sure that one of the tendons ruptured when i tried to open a water bottle. The doctor is out of town until my next appointment which is 12 days from now. I am extremely scared about the result of this rupture and the aftermath. What is the normal procedure following a post op rupture?

It's been 8 weeks since I had surgery to repair a cut flexor tendon and nerve in my index finger. The cut was between my hand and middle knuckle. I am able to bend that knuckle but not the tip. At first the tip could move a little, but now I have NO control in it. Is this a sign I should be concerned enough to 'move up' my next Dr.s appt.?? ...or is this normal?

should my index finger and thumb still be numb after flexor tendon surgery, for my thumb.
A few days later I visited a hand specialist and was told i needed surgery which I had to repair ulnar nerve in thumb, index radial nerve in index finger and also thumb flexor tendon. I am still numb but on a recent visit to my Doctor he mentioned I also had severed an artery but that this wasn't repaired. Should I be worried.

between my thumb and index finger that he thinks may be sesamoiditis. I can't find much information on sesamoiditis in the hand. Would a cyst have shown up on an MRI without contrast? This nodule has not gotten smaller since the injection.
I saw an ortho who said I had the tightest flexor tendons in those fingers causing the swelling and stiffness and a muscle knot in each palm under index finger. All he said he could do is send me to an OT. I do not have Raynauds and my hands are not swollen just specific areas. I am at a loss, I was told it could be the celiac or my thyroid, I also have diabetes in my family but no one can figure out why this is happening and I just need relief.
I had a two level cervical fusion (C5-C7) a year ago. My pain and numbness was in my index finger and middle finger, arm and shoulder.

Also, can you recommend some strengthening exercises for the muscles that control the 3rd and 4th fingers more specifically the flexor digitorum profundus? Thanks for your time! Dave. Dear Dave: Sorry to hear about your problems. As you know, if the lesion below the origin of its dorsal branch, the ulnar nerve lesion would only give you numbness in the 4th and 5th digits. Lesions in the median and radial nerve will give you numbness in digits 1, 2 and 3 (thumb, index, and middle fingers).

Lesions in the median and radial nerve will give you numbness in digits 1, 2 and 3 (thumb, index, and middle fingers). Of course the distribution would be distinct for each nerve.

i had no more pills but my back was ok. then two weeks later i suffered a hand injury. a strained flexor tenden in my right index finger. this small injury was probably the worst pain ive ever had in my life. i was given ultracets but they had little if any effect on the pain. so i went back to my doctor and got norcos.(since i have high liver enzymes) norcos are a better pain reliever since they contain less amounts of apap. i used them for a few days and stopped when the pain subsided.
It didn't stop not even for a minute for about a week. You can see a muscle in the fleshy part between my thumb and index finger jumping up and down. It stopped for about an hour and is still twitching to this day. I have lost most strength in my left arm. My fingers went numb and then I had the pins and needles feeling. Then my right hand started to hurt. My fingers felt as though they were locking and I couldn't close them. It hurts to type or lift things.
firstly, certain nerves from the brachial plexus run through and around the scalene muscles in the neck. these finger sized muscles take major punishment and go into spasm and get rock hard when there is chronic forward head posture as in computer users or people with desk jobs. these muscles can compress nerves. I only posted becaue you had the surgery and did not get better--- logic may tell you that the compression may be taking place outside the spine.
I got checked for prostate pain the other day they stick a finger up your butt and apply pressure to the prostate and ask you if it hurts. In my case it didnt feel good but it didnt hurt either. Keep your heads up gents I have faith that one day we will all be pain free. Oh another good way to get rid of the pain is to drink 3 - 4 double vodka tonics :) If you look above I listed some good links for CPPS.
