The franken-thumb is a bit smaller, but the doc says he's still hopeful that the bone will continue to fuse with my hand.
I now have to keep my eye on it (check) and if there is any sign of infection the bone will be removed.
I'd cross my fingers if I could, but am relieved to know that my native hand is not at risk of getting smaller.
Here's a picture of the plate and screws that were in my hand.
I had no idea they were this long.
Now I'm curious as to how they removed them.
