Constantine: I sincerely urge you not to push it. I have had thumb joint reconstruction (CarpalMetaCarpal) surgery on both hands at the same time as CarpaTunnel Release surgery - left hand first, right hand a year later. This was followed by surgery for trigger finger and Duputren's on my left hand about two years ago. All required OT therapy and home therapy. I'll never have 100% recovery, but I'm able to shot long guns, hand guns and compound bows. Patience - recover first - then slowly return to perfection shooting. Easy for an old f..t to write, but still my honest advice based on too much actual experience.
