Hi! I'm looking for advice on overcoming hand injury. Here's my story. It's coming up on one year now since the worst thing that ever happened to me. Last November, I stepped out of my house and went to push the storm door closed. I pushed on the nice decorative glass and when the door hit the jam, the glass shattered and I put my hand (the left) right through it. The glass broke into jagged shards and two of them went into my hand. One entered the base of my middle finger and went nearly right through the hand. The other put a deep cut below the ring finger. At the emergency room they just verified that the tendons were not completely severed and sewed me back up and sent me home. Well, all was not well. I had partially severed the tendons for my middle finger and basically could not use my hand at all for at least three months. After a long time of worrying about it I finally was referred to a hand specialist for physical therapy. It had been healing wrong too long and I had to go to therapy for a long time before I could finally move my hand without pain. So, now things are steadily but very slowly getting better. I'm playing OK, but it still bothers me. I have excersizes that my physical therapist gave me and putty to squeeze and rubber band gripping devices and all that. But it is still not completely better and I've pretty much given in to the thought that it may never be. Have any of you ever had to overcome an injury like this? Can you give me any advice for working on my hand to help get it back in shape? Any advice at all would be appreciated. When this happened I got pretty depressed thinking that 20 years of practice had been nullified by one stupid accident. But I am coming back strong. I could use some words of advice or encouragement from someone who's been in a similar situation. Thanks in advance for anything you can offer.
