Trigger Finger Surgery


Cabin Fever

Recommended Posts

Now, I'm not talking about itchy trigger finger, that usually develops later in the season! :cool:

I've had trigger finger and terrible joint pain that goes along with it for a couple of months now. I've had 2 Cortisone shots and been on a round of steroids, but each shot only gave me relief for 3 weeks. I went to the doc again on Wed and he said surgery is the next step. NOT what I wanted to hear, especially 11 days before bow season starts! I told him about my concern, with bow season right around the corner. He actually squeezed me in to his surgery schedule for the very next day (Thurs), so I could get the healing process started before season. He said I can't draw my bow until the 2" incision on the palm of my hand has healed, for fear of tearing it open and getting an infection, which would really F my season up! I figured I would rather miss the first week of season while recovering, than need to miss 3 weeks mid to late Oct, which ain't gonna happen!! I'll probably go out the first week, but it would have to be a damn good shooter, before I attempt to draw the bow. 

Very thankful I'm not a procrastinator and have 99.9% of my season prep done already. All 9 stands are up, trimmed, and ready to go! Just need to wash my camo!

I see,misleading us...trigger finger is on the other hand,lol.

I didn’t think of it that way, but I can see how that could be misleading! LOL  Trigger finger is an actual condition. The doc makes an incision in the palm of the hand to release trigger finger from catching.

I took it as actually having surgery on your trigger finger too.  Learn something new every.... well, almost every day. 

Good luck with the surgery. Hopefully you will be shooting soon.

I guess I assumed everyone knew what trigger finger was! LOL

I had surgery yesterday. Glad I could get a 10 day head start with healing before season starts.

Looks like a spot that shouldn't be on the riser anyway. Best wishes for a speedy recovery!

That’s what I tried to tell the doc and even demonstrated. He wasn’t having it though, saying I could tear the stitches open and risk infection, so I needed to wait to shoot until the incision is healed over.
