Would like to hear from ANYBODY who has had this similar surgery on their thumb & wrist joints to remove the arthritis. I am still all swelled up, PT is wanting me to start exercising, & I can't move my thumb at all. It feels numb until I try to force it to move & then the pain is excruiciating to say the least. Suppose to be trying to force it up & down & it goes no where! Can move wrist back & forth about 1/2 inch. Ugh! If I had known it was going to be so bad, I probably wouldn't have had it done. Any help anyone?
