My palm is completely healed as far as the actual incision is concerned, but inside my hand, I still have some nerve pain and stiffness. I held a club the other day, but I can only do it with a 10 finger grip. My left hand that had surgery can't extend the index finger for my usual reverse overlap putting grip and my right hand, still waiting to have surgery, hurts too much to overlap with the little finger.

I can't deny it's a lot better than it was. I'm back to playing some guitar, about 30 minutes at a time before I cramp up, but golf is still a long way off.

Dennis,  You've probably got the Physio covered, but, have a look here, 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caJCwqGKRCY

Simple exercises that give the whole hand a work out. I still have a box of three golf balls on my desk in the office and I often do the simple exercises just to keep the hands and fingers supple.

Hope you get sorted soon.

Hi Dennis ... Thought you'd been a bit quieter than usual? - Maybe if you spent more time typing on here it would help build up your finger muscles? - Glad to hear there is some progress & keep up the physio ... Paul

I was watching the AT&T tournament from Pebble Beach yesterday, something I've had a really hard time doing while my hand has been healing. It just upsets me to watch golf when I can't play.

I feel like my left hand is much better, though the heel of the hand is still hard and holding a club feels weird.

I decided to take out my 5 iron and see if I could actually hit some balls into my backyard net... BAD IDEA!!!

It's one thing that I've become so stiff that I couldn't make a backswing or follow through, but the mental issue of actually holding onto the club at contact is going to be something really difficult to get over.

I hit 3 balls, badly, and was immediately sorry when my wrist got swollen and I had to ice it. This morning, it's still swollen and hurts like crazy.

Just another one of my bad ideas... Maybe I should stick to guitars and looking like a movie star...  ;-)

Sorry to hear that Dennis & (for a change) I will resist any "funny" comments! - Hope things start to improve & you can get back to the golf sooner rather than later ... Paul

Sorry to hear that Dennis. Perhaps we can all spend our spare time emulating Ted Potter Jr., the unlikeliest of all role models.

Thanks guys... It's been pretty frustrating, but as my surgeon apologized in his explanation, "I have to sell you come confidence before I cut you open."

One of my Monday regulars came over this morning and we just spent the morning regripping his clubs. It was nice to have company and see him again.
