Ok, so playing football on Thursday, i saved a shot and ended up with a dislocated thumb, anyone suffered that before and worked out how to ride a road bike with it?

Could i strap it up in some way or do i just wait the two weeks the doctor advised before i'll be able to get some grip without so much pain?

Its at the stage where it looks like a really bad bruised banana and hurts to hold anything which is bugging me because unlike the rest of Scotland, its currently decent weather here  20
