Ruptured Tendon in hand

(3 Posts)

I ruptured a tendon in my right hand 8 weeks ago.
I was too ill to have surgery then and am due to see the consultant to arrange operation at the end of the month.
As I am now much better I am more active and my hand is becoming more painful.
Can anyone tell me how to support it to prevent further damage and limit pain please?

I can't bend my little finger at all.

Have you tried buddy taping your little finger? That will keep it moving with the next finger and should be more comfortable

Thank you for replying. smile
I did as you advised and it is much more comfortable than before.
