    How was your appointment with Dr. Schlenker Sr?

    Apr 28, 2021
    I sliced open my hand after collapsing it on a glass bottle, bracing a fall. This was 26 years ago and my recovery has been astounding. My nerves still have numbness, which is to be expected given the deep and long wound (sliced all but couple of tendons, artery, etc), but I'm able to do vast majority of tasks with my right hand. Take heart to those that have had difficulty, the recovery is long (mine, a year) but part of what happens with such an integral part of the body. Thank you Dr. Schlenker - can't say it enough.
