I know it sounds lame but it hurts like hell! I seem to have bent my left thumb back farther than it is created to go in a bike wreck. I have wrapped it with an ace bandage but that is about it. Still get sharp pains sometimes even though I don't move it much. Is the bandage enough? It isn't swollen much so I haven't iced it.

How long does it normally take for things like this to heal? I am left handed and in college so I really miss having full use of my thumb, besides that I can't do an upper body workout because of it! Any ideas?

I did the same thing to my left thumb in an auto accident in 86. My thumb still hurts at times today and it will still bend back further than intended. Gets sore really easily with use. And that was almost 20 yrs ago.

See an ortho doctor asap if possible.

Good luck.
