I had the same surgery 8 weeks ago. My pins were removed last week. I haven't been wearing the brave they gave me but I have gained full movement back in my thumb. The only problem I have is sometime a sharp pain occurs when I grab something or open something. I think it's my tendon that is causing this pain. Does anyone know how long it will take the pain to stop???
