Thanks Geotraveller. I am not so sure about laughing about it.

Dude, all I can say is 'good luck'. Your whole world has now changed.
My hand got stuck between a lister motor and two fan belts. Was in theatre 4 times to repair the damage (fix bone, re-attach sinew and muscle, 2x skin grafts), the last time I came out of theatre I had 87 stitches in my hand. Dr actually wanted to amputate middle finger because of the damage (my Dad just said No.).

Simple things like brushing your teeth (If you are right handed, good luck doing that with you left hand). Putting in contact lenses with one hand, wiping.. Like I said, your world changes....

If I may offer one piece of advise, start with physio as soon as you are able.  The skingrafts on my hand was still dying (going black) when the doctor sent me to the physio, it bleeds, it's painfull as hell, but you heal faster, and the increased bloodflow aids healing.. (as well as the "joint" does not stiffen up)..

Again, Best Wishes!!!

@ Xavier

I am lucky that I do not have such extensive damage. In fact - I am very lucky to only have a slightly buggered thumb. Could have been so much worse.

But I must say - this thumb is SORE , Very sore , Today.

If you try hard enough,a shaft could do the same - dof comment!

Cleaned it again this morning and had a good look at the damage.  I was extremely lucky - it could have been much , much worse.
With a bit more luck , I should have a en 80% functional thumb in a few months.

It just goes to prove that learning by learning by mistake is not the best way. Recover soon.

Hando, moenie te sleg voel nie. Die kettingmonster het my ook beet gehad in 2001.
Was besig om 'n ketting voerder in my hoenderhok te stel, toe start die ding outomaties.
Ek was te laat, het my pinkie gegryp en my hand deurgetrek.
My middelvinger se punt het aan 'n velletjie gehang en die ander 2 vingers se punte was heeltemal af. Spesialis kon darm my middelvinger red.

So, welkom by die IDOITCLUB, ek is ook 'n lid, sonder 'n lit of 2.

Sterkte, hoop jy het nie te veel pyn nie. :thumleft:

Hope it heals up soon and that it doesn't hamper your riding ability.
