How long was it before you started PT? Trying to get a timeline for being out of work.

Apr 29, 2018 · Pyrocarbon thumb joint replacement in Joint Replacements

Hi,
I’m new to this board, I’m a 44 year old male, firefighter,bagpiper, who has bilateral cmc joint arthritis, which is now bone on bone. I’ve gone through shots which don’t help anymore, had a nerve ablation with no relief, cold laser therapy with no relief, my dr has recommended the stablyx implant. I live a few hours away from dr Orbay who invented it, so am going to try and have him do the surgery. I’m trying to get some feedback from people who have had this implant. Would you recommend it? How long is the recovery time? Seems a lot shorter than some of the other surgeries. Any insight, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Scott
