That's the pits....

Whatever you do, don't bend that thumb or all the surgeon's work will come undone.

Wow, Tom -- I'm really sorry to hear of your misfortune. That is a tough break. For you, I'm hoping for speedy healing so you can get back to speedy heeling!

I run the engineering department in a pharmaceutical company which has its main focus on equipment repair

If you weren't right handed before, you will be now... for a while.
Or celibate. ;)

Hang in there.

Its just a flesh wound.

Sorry to see this happen.

I fell at work and on the way down grabbed a bookcase. The sharp edge of the shelf cut half way through the tendon on my little finger. While the surgeon was stitching it back together I asked him if I would be able to play the piano afterwards. He stopped, looked at me and asked if I could play before the accident.

Heal fast Tom. The tendons on top of the hand tend to heal well, unlike the tendons on the other side. In that sense I guess you're lucky.

Fortunately, I didn't get the tendon when I cut my thumb. Being in the bayous of Louisiana though, with nary a doctor for miles, it came down to duct tape, neosporine, gauze pad and the broken off handle of a plastic fork. No stitches, no scar. Just keep it immobile and it should heal up fine.
