Last spring I was kicked repeatedly by a student on my right hand(thumb, index finger),wrist and lower arm. It was the worse pain I have ever experienced! I feel that my work on the job as well as I are suffering because of thisI have lost strenght in the right hand and arm. I drop things I attempt to hold, I am afraid of trying to cook for fear of dropping a hot pot or pan and possibly burning myself.My house cleaning has been put completely on hold. My handwriting and typing are now terrible, and it takes me three times as long to do what I normally did (from brushing my teeth to dressing myself.)I have swelling in the hand and fingers, pain in the hand and arm, and some mornings when I awaken Ido not have feelings in the arm hand,or fingers. I have gone to occupational therapists and orthopaedic doctors.
I am now wearing a spica brace. I have been scheduled to began hand therapy again and have been scheduled to see anotherhand specialist.
I am at my wits end because I have not improved and I do not know what my future holds for me.Can you help me, please?
