Long story short, I injured my thumb on a piece of sheet metal. Cut right to the joint where yer thumb "webs" to your pointer finger. I still have thumb-mobility ability, but I can't feel anything. Just numb. The hand surgeon I saw yesterday (the incident happenned on Tuesday) said to "wait and see" basically, as the nerves I damaged could correct themselves...too soon to tell really. But I'm very tactile-oriented, and this is freaking me out...the posibilities and what ifs. Right now I can hold a pick, but it feels wierd, same if I go finger style...I'm a fair bit concerned about my playing future. Anyone else dealing with this? And how do you get on with it? Thanks.
