It’s weird how long some things take. I once lost a big toe nail and it took a year to grow back. Hope you recover quicker and painlessly.

Toenails are slow. I haven't lost one lately, but I lost a few when I ran ultras. One of the bad ones (for me) has been either medial or lateral epicondylitis (tennis or golfer's elbow). Generally takes a year.

Good that you are seeing a real hand expert. Do you have to brace it for the whole expected recovery period?

But that's not your map / compass hand, right? :-)

I have to brace them for as much as I can until it starts to feel better and the swelling goes down. Then I think on an "as needed" basis. I've already learned how to type with them on, so that's good.

Brooke - I had to think about that for a second. It is my compass hand and my dibber hand. I'll just go without my "buddy bands" for any O events.

I feel like you could rig something up to take advantage of the buddy bands while orienteering. Like a nice e-punch holding angle.

Maybe a good excuse to upgrade to SI Air -- so you don't have to finagle your fingers into the box while they're injured!

Good idea Brooke!
Hope the recovery goes by quickly and smoothly.

Dibber might be fit under those bands and compass on your thumb?

I use a baseplate, but I'll figure it out tomorrow at the local event.
