Kinda difficult to ride with fu*ked up thumbs.

I had surgery last month and hope to be back on a bike by.....IDK March or April.

My arthritis was so bad I was beyond bone on bone. I was bone into bone :thumbup:
Everyday shit was painful.

Doc plucked out the bad bone and replaced it with a chunk of tendon from my forearm. Tied a few knots or something and all should be well in a few months. I'm doing therapy now twice a week until the end of the year.

I have been shit bored for the last month and a half.

Try doing everything you do with your left (or off hand) for a month. Fu*k me what a pain in the ass.

Try being in 10th grade with 2 broken arms cast finger tips to arm pits. Very humbling school days.

At least when I've broken my wrist/arm I had the good sense to do it on my off-hand. That's some pretty gnarly thing you've got going on there Bruce and hope you get a full recovery on it. How long before you can do any strength exercises on it?

arthritis is a bummer as we age. My left knee will just out of the blue get sore and feel "tight" for 2-3 days then it subsides and I am good to go. 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!
Lots of cool bikes---
