My bones are not going to heal. Got to have another surgery. Dr. is not sure which way he's going to go yet. He was honest and said he needed to do some research on it. He said he did this for a living but it was very meticulous. Will either try a rod and pins or take the bone out of the end of my thumb and then cut off the end of my thumb. I'm a little dishearted because I thought I was out of the woods as far as loosing any part of it. I'll know something in a few weeks.
