For the past 3 or so years I've been dealing with a finger injury that never really seemed to go away. The other day I finally went to see a doctor about it and, well, turns out it's been broken this whole time. With the only real solution being surgery with an 80% success rate attached to the operation and healing, I was hesitant, but decided that if I want to climb for the rest of my life it was worth the risk.
Today, I was lucky enough to walk out of a successful surgery and while there is still a chance the joint won't heal properly all that's left to do is hope 🙏
Provided the worst case scenario of joint fusion doesn't have to play out, I'll be able to get back to climbing things like this in a few months.
