Hello,. Good morning and best wishes. Sorry before, I want to ask if the former operation on my right hand that has been operating for 19 years can be re-operated and repaired nerves that fail to function such as the index finger and thumb cannot do the bending motion by itself. Please enlighten me and the instructions. Thank you and best regards.

Hello Malik,

Thank you for the question.

It needs to be clarified, what exact operation did you undergo before? What conditions require you to undergo surgery? In addition to difficulty moving and bending the index finger and thumb, are there any other complaints that you feel, such as numbness, pain, shortened finger size, and so on?

Difficulty in moving and bending the index and thumb after surgery most often occurs due to muscle atrophy (shrinkage). This condition can occur because the muscles are rarely trained and moved after surgery, usually because of fear of feeling pain.

It could also, in addition to muscle atrophy, your complaints occur due to the formation of scar tissue, nerve disorders, ligamentous disorders, joint disorders, and many other conditions that do not always occur related to the operation.

Without checking you directly, it is certainly not our authority to determine whether your condition may still be healed as before, or not. The good, so that you can do a deep physical examination, related to the motor function of your fingers, check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist. Depending on the cause and severity of the condition, your complaint may later be treated with physiotherapy, or surgery can be performed by a surgeon.

In the meantime, you should not carelessly massage or force your stiff fingers. Enough, warm compress your fingers that are difficult to move, move passively slowly, and diligently consume foods rich in vitamin B for healthy nerves, muscles, and the supporting network around your finger is always awake.

Hope this helps ...
