I am 65, live in the UK with a number of conditions and had a Trapeziumectomy 3 weeks ago.
If anyone has gone through this I have some questions.
How long before you got enough function to drive, and it would not damage it and was allowed to drive?
I was told I cannot, not for at least another 8 weeks, its been three. But that maybe because I have another condition in the other hand, Kienböck’s disease which means I rely on this one they have just done this op on entirely to drive ( or do anything really) If someone has no problems on the other hand I guess they could drive? But I cannot.
How much function did you get back?
Did it stop or reduce the pain?
One of my problems is that as my left ankle is fused, my right not good, have kienbocks in my left wrist arthritic knees and osteoporosis. So cannot risk a fall and rely on this hand to hold my stick which I need to safely walk slopes, steps uneven ground etc
So how long until you had the grip to hold a stick etc?
I have more but that is enough for now.
