I decided to go with my private health fund and use a private hand surgeon to perform the operation as I decided my hand working correctly was worth the cost. Total cost is going to be roughly $2000.
I went private as I could have surgery the next day, with our public system the earliest I could have been seen was Monday afternoon, 2 days after the accident and by a trauma surgeon. This still would have cost me but only around 1/4 of the cost.

Thanks for all the well wishes guys, I am just slightly able to wiggle my fingers. I have been slowly bending them one knuckle at a time while holding the rest with my left hand. I am paying for it with pain but am glad I have some movement.
I will have to try all these tips once I am cleared by the surgeon to start with recovery methods. Find out Friday I guess.

My main source of pain at the moment seems to be over sensitivity and random stabbing pain around my knuckles. To be expected I suppose.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Sure glad to hear that you're getting great care and are on the mend.  Looks like a great start on your project; things are still a little rough, but clean-up, body filler, and a little paint should have things looking normal soon.  Wait... dude, that's your throttle hand, spare no expense and make sure they get things fixed right!

As shitty as it seems it will all heal up and you'll be good to go (eventually).
When I modified my foot a few years back I thought it would never heal up properly and now I don't even notice it (unless it's about to rain haha)

Shit that looks painful. I would be devastated, no more world class weld joints and easy jobs with mangled fingers..

Had another check up today just before I had the stitches removed. The Doctor said it is looking good but I am still at risk of losing the tip of my ring finger if an infection sets in the bone.

In a lot more pain with the stitches removed and I am not happy about the smell or fluid leaking from my hand. The new bandages are the same as the old ones.


I am due to have the wire removed in 2 weeks as it was not ready at this checkup. So no riding or driving for at least another 3 weeks.

Not a good idea to jump the gun on this occasion!

Good luck with the healing.

Are they using Iodosorb on the wounds? That's what they put on my open part of my foot to keep infection away and draw out the crap. I'd ask for it if you can, it really works. I still have my foot because of it.

Slow and steady man. Almost (but not quite) makes you with you lived somewhere like here in Canada, where the winter kills riding for 6-8 months...makes healing easier when you can focus on that and not on something you'd rather be doing.
