I’ve had Dupuytren’s Contracture for quite some time. I did the Xiaflex treatment twice, which was good, but then it progressed to the point where I could play a bit, but not practice daily. So, I pouted and sold all my gear with the exception of one beater guitar. Just last Wednesday, I had surgery and hope to be able to practice when healing progresses enough.
That looks pretty nasty, hope it gets you playing guitar again.
Wish you a speedy recovery, Michael, and hope you can back into playing when you are healed up.
Ow, Ow, Ow…all the best healing vibes to you WM!! Sure it’ll be worth it when the guitar is back in hand.
All the best in your recovery Michael, hope you get your hand sorted out and fully recovered.
On a separate note that picture can be not for everybody’s stomach, perhaps would be worth for mods to put a sensitive content or like a restriction to click on the image if you want to view it? Just a thought.
Good thinking. I removed the photo.
It FEELS nasty! If I do my daily 3x therapy (which I do), all should be well.
Thanks. I’m doing “off guitar” things to prepare. In a few days I’ll probably even do some strum work on the guitar itself.
It will feel great! I bought some drums to keep playing music, but it’s just not the same.
Hope you have a speedy recovery. Another hobby of mine is flying radio control airplanes and drones, getting my fingers struck by a prop is one of my fears and I’m much more cautious about that as compared to my days before I played guitar.
Strenght and patience! I wish you lots of it.
I strongly hope to see and hear you playing in the right time!
I’m feeling the pain of getting hit by a blade right now! I’m sure they turn much faster than my cheap one way back when I was 10 years old.
All the best Michael for a good recovery.
