There was one point, shortly after I was diagnosed with FOP, that I learned that the worst cases of FOP left everything immobilized except fingers and face muscles. At the time I was horrified, since I still had decent mobility, but then I figured it was only the worst case scenario and maybe I'd get lucky.

(Heh.)

Turns out, fingers aren't at all immune. I kept meaning to document the restrictions -- more so now that within the last year my left index finger has gotten affected. So here's the current state of my left hand:



(Right hand is in better shape -- the base of the thumb is locked, the pinky is crooked and bent and doesn't straighten, and the tipmost joint of the index finger is mostly fused, but I can clench a fist okay.)
