I just injured my left hand August 12th, I saw a hand surgeon the 16th and was told I have a torn UCL. I have been in a splint since the injury and would need surgery. I really do not want to go through surgery....is there anything else that can be done and still give me the correct outcome? I am a Dental Hygienist and use my hands everyday....since this accident I have not been working. Can I work with a brace on or do I have to just wait and wear the splint until this injury heals?
So distressed over this.
