I have had crps for almost 14 years now. Was a pro athlete small surgery ended my carrer and gave me a carrer in disability with my CRPS I got from the surgery.
2 years ago I broke my hand got acute compartment syndrome but they just operated 36 hours after they noticed what was going on as they thought it would go so far. I live alone in a different country from where I am from. Love it here and the health care except this mistake. But minutes mattered that they where able yo keep the hand on. Its my right one is/was the dominant one. I am an OT myself but still can’t do it all on my own and yes have hard time doing things and the pain. Just by taking shower. I basically need to choose if I want to make food, shower or clean each day due to my hand beeing useless.
And the doctors want to wait and wait. Now they are dealing with the pain but I also would love if they would deal with that I could use my hand.
Here are some pics of the scar and one of the fracture. Is there any hope thst I will use the hand again?
