2 months after finger tip amputation

Month Three: The shape

Two months has passed since the thumb tip amputation. The nail is slowly growing back.

The sensation in the thumb is still burning hot on every touch. The doctors say these are nerves growing back and adapting to the new shape.

The shape is what bothers me most for now. Besides missing a good chunk, the injured finger tip doesn’t look like a finger anymore. It is round and pointed.
I’ve started to get the first stares when I show this in public, so I never go out without a piece of bondage over the amputated thumb.

We’ll see what this will turn into.
