Topic - Broken Finger Advice- after rockfall incident in Peru

clarkie - on 18 Sep 2013
I would be interested how anyone else has recovered from a Fractured Finger. We were hit by rockfall in Peru. A closer call for my friend as he was blown off a ledge as his femar was snapped by a large rock. More fortunate for me but the incident has left me with a poorly set finger, now reset with a plate and 6 screws.

It is almost two weeks in since the operation and I am struggling to get flexibility back into the second knuckle.

Any physio advice or similar injury stories and how long it took to repair would be reassuring at the moment. I am concerned as there are a statistically large amount of "stiffys" out there due to not working on flexibility or working too late on flexing the joint.

I can only get about 15 degrees max from the knuckle at the moment.
