Now you can't leave that like that. How'd you break both arms at the same time?

But the dupuytren's contracture I am developing in my left hand can be a real challenge at times! Out of the blue my fingers will do their own thing and I have to stretch them out. It is weird when it comes on when I am riding as my fingers will involuntarily wrap around the bars! But atleast it is not painful

Hang in there Bruce, you'll be GOOD TO GO BY SPRING!
I've seen that a lot but usually it's the middle finger :dry:

Well, since we're sharing surgery pictures. The result of hitting a deer on my SuperHawk in '08, and abuse since then:

DAMN! Yeah. Tis the season :thumbup:

Had knee surgery back in 2015, also in the winter. I was riding a couple months later.

Good luck :deal:

I had that same “anchovy” surgery on my left thumb a few years ago. It worked out great. I went from constant pain and not being able to grip anything to having a fully functional hand. Hang in there and do the PT.

My right thumb is starting the same thing. I’m guessing that I’m a year or 3 away from another surgery.

12 weeks post surgery and I did a couple laps around the yard on my vintage trials bike :thumbup:

Hurt like hell, mostly in the wrist. Might be the trails standing position putting pressure on wrist :shrug:

Anyway, I'll try sitting on a bike next.

I'm a ways off from actually "riding".

The problem is lack of strength and I can only improve so much in a week.
Earlier today I was doing some shiplap installation, I couldn't squeeze the trigger on my mitre saw hard enough to make it work :lol2:
The funny thing is that I didn't even know, I thought the saw was broken.

Hey but you are making progress! At least now you can get on a bike now and slow fart around and have a little fun! by spring you'll be good to go. IN the mean time, I know an exercise that can help you with that "limp" wrist! :thumbup: :cheers: :duel:

Bruce get yourself one of those stress reliever squeeze balls and work it in your hand as much as you can. I went through something similar and that thing got my strength back more quickly that I had imagined.
