Looks good to me, but I don't know anything about grafts. I had my right hand get a little crushed and punctured, and it looked about that swollen for a while.

Good luck with the healing!

Okay look, I'm honest. Youre hand looks like chit. Now thats because I look down and see agnarled hand from years of hard work and my wife says my hands look bad.

Compared to what your hand should look like, it's doesnt only look good but it looks flipping amazing. That Dr thing is amazing.

Anyone with meat hanging out of the tops of their fingers and thinks their hand looks good has a great attitude! You're good, and tough... real tough. You're an inspiration dude, keep up the morale, we're praying for you.

Did I spot a wound vac before? But you're off it now so that's a great sign. What did they use for dressings?

Yeah that was a wound vac

So glad it's gone

Dressing is mostly zeraform?
It's a yellow Vaseline soaked gauze type thing that gets wrapped with regular gauze.

Yellow stuff prevents anything from sticking to the healing area.

The white things on my fingers keep pressure on them to keep the swelling down.

If you want a pic of the graft site on my arm I can get one tomorrow when the gauze gets changed.

Hard to believe just a couple weeks ago your hand went through a meat grinder.

Thank your dr's, I often find myself thinking of you when I'm about to do something that's questionable in safety. At least in all this you have probably saved me a little pain if not a limb. The other day I almost got in a fight with the chainsaw and thought, "better not". Thanks for that.

Glad I could help!

I think I will also be more cautious in the future, I hope.

Still looking good, man!

I'm a pretty weird guy and look at a lot of gross injury before and after pictures on the internet. At this point I feel like I'm qualified to tell you that you are definitely looking better than most on this one.

I have a lot of PT's/OT's in my family so I'm required to tell you to listen to them and do all your stretches and exercises. They're probably going to hurt and be annoying, but it's so important that you do them.

Good luck again!

You know what happens now right?

You will have the urge to wear socks on your hand now that part of your leg is on your hand.
