I got a question.
about two months ago I injured my thumb, doctor said partial tear to my UCL So put me in a cast for 6 weeks (No MRI). Was skating around being stupid with some friends and fell on it. I also play soccer for my school and it keeps getting hit with that. Came out of the cast still in pain with pinching and using my thumb, then got an MRI this past week. Results came back and said torn UCL (No evidence of a stener lesion) and a non displaced tear to my RCL. I went to a hand specialist the other day to see if I needed to have surgery. The doc said lets wait on surgery and come back and see me in about a month and we will see how it is then. The reason for that is because he said that the scar tissue will "heal the ligament" which kind of took me for a loop (mainly because I am a sports science so I have some knowledge about scar tissue and ligaments).
So my question is I am 20 years old about to be graduating from college, in the long run of life, work, and the sake of my thumb would it be smart to get the surgery?
