glad you will heal and thanks for the report. Maybe this a good chance to become ambidextrous (spelling is hard for me).

You will be back on the moto soon enough.

Sounds like a fairly minor accident. Your thumb will heal, even without surgery and pins (if you don't have insurance or don't want the surgery). Being straight is not that big of a deal. I have broken my hand twice without having bones set and other than sporadic pain when the weather changes, I have full range of motion.

yup, i have AAA premium. tow limit of 150miles included with annual membership. i called the 1800 number, told them the intersection and city and that i was on a motorcycle and need a flatbed, and the flat bed showed up in around 30-45 minutes just like they said. rode with the tow truck driver to my house. i had to help him get the bike up and down and may have caused additional damage to my break in the process. called a few doctors then drove my 5spd tacoma to visit 3 doctors. doctors said the bone doesnt have to be 100% straight becasuse the thumb has a large range of motion.

follow up visit today to remove my cast and take xrays; 6 weeks since i crashed. thumb is still broke, but bone is growing; i walked out with a splint. doctor ordered a follow up in a month, and physical therapy two times a week for a month.

so far this minor wreck cost a pretty chunk of change out of my HSA account through in network doctors.

I don't know what's it like to have a broken bone and would like to keep it that way. What kind of PT do they have you doing? thumps up and down?

Wish you a speedy recovery!

Had a thumb broken in about the same place from a dirt bike crash when i was about fifteen not nearly as displaced though, and then reinjured it with my last crash. it will probably hurt like to squeeze anything for about six months. glad to hear you are doing ok and on the mend though.
