Hi Alois!  I fractured my finger a week ago, and I was wondering if you knew how long it would take before I "should" go back to playing again.  I tried it a little last night after you answered my question on "best serve", and it felt about 75%.  Sorry for the different question!

Hi Nikolas,

Not sure on this one.  I think a doctor may be better qualifies to tell you.  It is difficult with a broken finger because you use it so much when playing.  Pain is probably one indicator that you can use.

I recently broke two of my fingers and started playing again after 9 days. The doctor said I should have waited at least twice as long as that. So I guess you should wait at least 18 days and a bit longer would be better. You should still ask a doctor, since there would be differences between injuries.

Thanks.  He said 2 weeks of no right hand, but I went a little early!  :)

Be careful!  There is always time to play when it gets better.
