I was thinking / hoping that it was just a sprain; as you do, but I knew better - something; like excruciating pain and the fact that I could not use my hand, was a dead give away.
Went to a couple of doctors along the way, who did not give me their excellent service, maybe because I was a fly-in and not a regular customer - who knows. I did get an Xray and a physio visit out of all that and still no relief. One thing I did come away with was a piece of advise from the young lady physio - to buy a thumb splint / guard, which I did while down in Lake Macquarie near Newcastle in NSW and have been wearing it ever since.
The injury is still there although the pain is more localized to the one spot. Still cannot use my hand/ thumb for most things.
My doctor in Brisbane sent me for an ultrasound and off to the "hand doc". so now I am booked in for surgery next we and am looking forward to a full recovery in about six weeks. Then we can sail............!!!!
