Had basal thumb joint surgery. Following the surgery and cast removal, it was obvious the surgery was botched up! It looked as though they placed the tendon ribbon on the wrong side of my palm, so it literally looks as though my thumb is coming out of my palm instead of the side of my hand! Prior to the surgery I informed the doctor that I rode a motorcycle. I had to give up riding because of the huge bump that is in the way when gripping the clutch and I no longer had the secure grip!
