    Sorry to hear about your injury.

    If you work out at a gym that has machines, many of them you can use without putting pressure on your thumb per say. Just be creative. I'd focus on those exercises that your able to do and maybe up the cardio a bit over the next couple of weeks.

    Good luck Bro!
