    "After all the surgeries and the cast finally came off, my right arm/dominant hand came out looking like a tiny emaciated t-rex arm"

    It does take it's toll. I'm learning patients, something I"m not good at.

    I expected it to be a slow go. Coming along great. I've been extremely blessed. I had zero pain from the injury. Just some muscle spasms as it rolled up the arm. More annoying than painful. I had no bruising. The doctor said my surgery was a bad one, the muscle and tendon had rolled way up high in the arm. Again, I had zero post surgery pain. Now, fast forward to week 8 post surgery, what has given me the most pain and dysfunction is my wrist and hand. Therapist says it's all connected. My wrist seems to be getting better, but when I first get up in the mornings, it takes a couple of minutes before I can get my fingers working like they should. I guess that's more from it being in a fixed position for so long and surgery trauma. Oh well, counting my blessing on this one.

    Definitely do all of your PT and then some. Whatever reasonable (affordable) gear they have you use at PT, buy for home use and use it. Believe me, you will not regret it.
