Hi, 5.6 months ago I broke my thumb below the second joint . I had two temporary pins put in and was in a cast for six weeks (it was a clean uncomplicateed break, not twisty or fragmented). The pins were removed 4.4 months ago. I seem to have restored all of its original strength but it is still very, very sore esp if I make a movement that has the thumb stretching towards my pinky and pointing downwards toward my palm. That is roughly the same movement that broke it (I fell while bike riding and the hand got caught between the ground and the handlebar). Is pain this long after having the pins removed normal? How long can I expect it to last if so. Many thanks.
