1 doctor agrees

In brief: As soon

as practicable see a BOARD CERTIFIED HAND SURGEON (and if your present surgeon is that SEE ANOTHER ONE ) for a SECOND OPINION.
..YES you could have a scarred down tendon...I ASSUME you are in THERAPY for regaining function!! If not YOU SHOULD BE! Hope this helps! Dr Z
