Amputation!!! Right hand.... Is the pain that severe that you would loose your right hand to get over the pain... It is very rare that electrocution must cause severe pain so get it checked again.. You can consider other physiotherapy options like infrared heat therapy for pain relief then amputation.. If i were you i would consider all the options instead of amputations.. Shall pray so that one of the treatment works.. All the best..

I have no burns, all the damage is inside my hand. the nerve in my hand is what's damaged. I can't lift a milk jug without hurting myself. My doctor said it will take some time to heal. And that if I injure my hand it will add more trauma to my hand slowing the healing process. But my hand is always hurtting wich means my hand is continually giveing itself trauma. And thats why it's been three years with this injury without it getting better. .hmmessage P {margin:0px;padding:0px;} body.hmmessage {font-size:10pt;font-family:Verdana;}
