Surgery was the best idea to help the pain

A couple of months ago, I cut my hand and severed the tendon badly.

  • I was working on a ductwork repair and I was cutting the sheet metal with a pair of very sharp shears.

A bird flew from the rafters of the house and scared me. When I got startled, I lost my focus and the shears sliced through my hand. I had to go to the emergency room to have the hand examined. I needed surgery to help correct the damage, otherwise I would always have some residual pain and temporary loss of motor function in that hand. I felt strongly that the surgery would allow me the best chance to recover. After the surgery, I had to take several weeks off work to heal. While I was healing, I didn’t have any use of my left hand. I couldn’t work on HVAC repairs, so I was stuck in the office answering telephone calls most of the day. I scheduled appointments and gave advice over the phone. When I returned to work after the accident, I had to learn how to use my hand again. The tendons and muscles had to be retrained. I’m still trying to return to 100% so I can go back to HVAC repairs without any issues. I still go to physical therapy 3 times a week and I don’t have full use of my hand. The physical therapist said it might take a couple of months, but my recovery is going well. I’m already showing signs that the surgery was totally and completely successful.
