Terrible to hear! My heart goes out to you ziq! Hopefully there is some sort of physical rehabilitation you can take to get your hand functioning a bit more over time if it isn’t completely fucked. Really feel for you, take care of yourself! Healing can take a long time ❤️

Ouch. Hope you get all movement back to your fingers

Another note, from someone who has suffered a wrist fracture and had to wear a cast on my dominant hand for months.

If your dominant hand is out of play for the next foreseeable future, now is a good time time to train your non-dominant hand and that may have the benefit of making you more ambidextrous for certain tasks in the future when your dominant hand recovers. If the injury is in your non-dominant hand, then likewise, your dominant hand will get stronger. And maybe you can even do things you needed to do two-handed, one-handed.

Best wishes

You got this. Ambidextrous-ness is so cool

Ouch... I hope the damage isn't too bad.

Having assisted someone that lost parts of fingers, assuming surgery was undertaken, you're at the beginning of a very long recovery.

Surgery and metal rods inserted

Wolverine makes it seem awesome, but all you get is more than a month of regularly changing dressing, plus scar tissue messing up finger flexibility, plus potentially never regaining the full capacity of your hand.

Plus all the pain...

... Bummer, hope things are going okay.

the hospital is an hour drive away and i can't drive until at least the end of april so the weekly dressing changes are really becoming a problem (no public transport here). wish they'd just let me do it myself, it looks simple enough
