More finger than you care to know about

I saw a hand specialist last week who said I needed very concentrated therapy to regain mobility, strength and coordination in my hand and finger again. He promised it would be incredibly painful and prescribed vicodin to be taken right before each session. Tonight was session one of six and he did not lie. It hurt very, very much but I was able to breathe through it with the help of only one vicodin rather than two. I have to continue working with my hand in between sessions with the pros. For this I will probably need two vicodin to get over the pain and the fact that I know when it's coming since I'm doing it to myself. I really don't have patience for this crap.
