Flexor Tendon Injury

Broke my right little finger about 10 month back, doc used kwire to align the bones, after 4 weeks they removed the wire. but didnt got the active moment, so had my PT for 1-2 months....now also i didnt recoverd the active motion. so doc diagnosis is flexor tendon injury, need surgery. so my question is what will be my percentage recovery after surgery?

Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your medical problems.  It is very difficult to predict the percentage of recovery. You would need a MRI of the hand to assess the degree of injury. Sometimes surgery is pretty effective and at other times it may not be. The success rate depends on the degree and location of the injury.
Please consult your doctor regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
