So, this month I underwent second surgery in pursuit to get default thumb length back.
Many observations confirm children can regrow cut off finger tips. That’s not a rare miracle.
It’s a fact. Most children up to the age of 12 can regrow amputated digits. On one important condition.
Sport benefits are doubtful, while sport harm is obvious. This philosophy is strikingly true when it comes to sport injuries.

This guy is world’s first one to receive double arm transplants.

A month has passed since the injury and the surgery.
The traumatologist described the new X-ray as consolidated fracture in satisfactory condition.
I’ve left the hospital and started to consult other doctors on possibilities to return my thumb to default.
As I came to see yet another specialist, things started to get grim.
After the surgery, they moved me to a common hospital room. “Common” meant 8 other patients shared it. The patients were male, heavy snoring included. Anyway, I was too exhausted to bother and felt asleep almost immediately, refusing painkillers and sedatives once again.
The next day my insurance company finally managed to get me a separate room my plan provided, and I moved in. Things started to settle.
It was in winter. I just came to a resort some 3 hours from the city. It was supposed to be a pleasure getaway.
Well, it turned out a nightmare.
