Not sure to be honest. I've never had anything amputated before. It seems to be doing ok I guess. I'm still keeping a full dressing on it most of the time and only letting it get air about an hour a day. It's very sore and burns and stings from time to time. I'm having some phantom pain where it feels like the end of my finger stings and itches where the finger is gone. From the way it looks it's gonna have a kind of V shape and not a nice round nub. I go back to the doc next Monday. May need some plastic surgery to get a nice round nub but I'll ask about that when I go back. I'm sure they will wait till it heals first before doing any of that. I don't think it's gonna fill in on it's own. Still on the antibiotics but only down to twice a day on the pain meds. Not sure how long it will take to heal. That finger is really tight as far as bending it. I can only bend the middle joint about 10 to 15 degrees. I try to keep bending it in hops it will loosen up. I think the infection is under control though. It's just really sore and still hurts a good bit. Still keeping my work load down to a minimum, witch is giving me to much idle time.How’s the finger doing?
Thanks for asking.
