Thanks for the reply Erik. My wife did hers by falling chasing our new puppy! It is a common injury but as I said, as a professional musician it can be devastating. We did get some encouraging news from another hand specialist who is going to build a custom splint which she will have keep on for a further 6 weeks. If that doesn't work then it could be a Kirchner wire which is later taken out. Either way it is going to take a long time and we will have to patient. Tell people you are off work with an injured pinkie and watch the reaction!!
