4 - 8 weeks
 

 

The pins were removed 4 weeks post surgery (even then one of the pins did not really want to come loose and had to be tugged to get it out). Normally this would not be considered until at least 6 weeks, sometimes longer depending on the amount of bone growth).

8 weeks post op it can be seen that no plastic surgery will be necessary. With ongoing physiotherapy on the recovering tendons this finger currently has about 80% range of motion, all joints movable and the prognosis is a full recovery.

So thanks must go both to the expert micro-surgery performed by Dr Mike Cheesman and the hyperbaric oxygen treatment for saving this woman's finger and avoiding a disfiguring amputation.
