Update, that is. The finger update. I had a cortisone shot a month ago. After about a week and a half, the finger was almost back to normal - I had pretty much full flexibility and almost zero pain. Still had some weakness, which I attributed to not being able to play as much for so long. Then the finger went all Flowers For Algernon on me and started regressing about a week ago. Every day, the range of motion decreased. Which is not to say there wasn’t any improvement - it was still easier to get the flexibility and mobility back than it had been before the shot, but it was detiorating. Saw the doc today, and with no stretching beforehand, the range of motion was about what it was when I first saw him. Took more effort to get the mobility back. Got another shot. If this one doesn’t stick, it’s carve me up time. I’m hoping the shot works. I was able to record and play tonight, but I’m paying for it a little bit now.
