Avid Mountain Biker had a Gamekeeper's Thumb from a Bike Accident
I had surgery done by Dr. Nelson for a dislocated thumb ("gamekeeper's thumb"). I'm writing this primarily to ease the anxiety of anyone who may be worried about the operation or its aftermath. The whole experience was entirely comfortable. I was put under and had a nice nap, and when I woke up it was all done; I went home, and, following Dr. Nelson's regimen, had no post-operative pain or discomfort. I had no need to take Vicodin. Full recovery takes a while, but I was not majorly handicapped. All in all, actually a pleasant experience.
