    Best wishes for a full recovery. Make sure any OT splint/physio regime is the optimum for your needs. I was splinted for too long, the specialist Doc said, left my right thumb permanently slightly swollen with less range of sensation and movement. Can play, but thumbpickin' would be more difficult.

    Don't rush the healing!

    I broke two fingers on my right hand. Had a shitty ortho doc that didn't know wtf he was doing. I have about 80% mobility now so I can still hold a pick.......and squeeze a trigger!

    Shit happens! :cheers:

    I don't know if it will heal right or not. Dr. was not a surgeon . Like an urgent care Dr. , I am in bumfuck Egypt . It hurts a little . 8 stitches .
    Once I punched hole in my hand but no real damage. This one was deep . The Dr. goes , I don't know why it's swelling ? Hmmm

    Any sign of trouble be very proactive!!!!!

    How'd you cut your hand, dude?
    Keep it clean, and start playing as soon as you're able. I've had a couple more hand injuries than I would care to admit. Playing guitar has helped my hands stay mobile.

    ring & thumb are 3 fingers apart. I'm not following you there...

    you mean pointer?

    Stitches eh? yeah, you'll have to make sure you work out your healing just right. I had a deep cut from glass, that took over a year, before the pain went away - probably closer to 2. I had 5 stitches on that.

    Get better. Don't push it too fast, but, don't take it too slow though either. You don't want it to heal stiffened up. There's a fine balance, but, I'd probably rather error on slow...

    Being handicapped, I wouldn’t know what to do all day if not for grabbing a guitar for hours at a time. Hoping OP gets back to playing ASAP.

    Sorry to hear that IB.
    Maybe it's time to invest in an electric can opener instead of continuing to use that hunting knife eh.
    Get well soon amigo.
