Bone on bone thumbs

Seems older posts have disappeared so I'll update my story. I had CMC surgery on right thumb in late October, 2018. I chose the Stablyx implant. I've had a previous implant in left hand in 2009 which has worked great. That implant is not made any longer. I am now able to use my right hand for almost everything! Still doing OT twice weekly. My hand surgeon did 2 dry surgeries before using me as his first patient. I'm glad I did it and I have great confidence in him. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I'm bone on bone, wear a brace and I'm having a really hard time performing my duties as a nurse. Since I am currently single I obviously need to work. My ortho wants to do the tendon thingy and assures me a 100% return to mobility but I've heard horror stories about the recovery or lack thereof. I'm hearing good things about this Dr Elhassan at Mayo. Is this where you had your surgery? How about recovery time ? Pain? Thank you in advance
