I have been suffering from an A2 pulley for the last 45 days.
Now im pain free in every day action, but still my finger feels a bit unattached and disconnected.
Now i have been told that this feeling may not vanish in couple of months, but how can i be sure that its ok to come back climbing?
Thanks

I had the same thing about a month and a half ago. I took a good month off and have been climbing easy stuff on it the past few weeks. I'd say ease your way back into it and see how it feels, adapting as you go. I have been sticking to routes/problems in lower grades that mostly have big holds and doing laps to keep in climbing shape, which has been working pretty well. I get occasional soreness in it while climbing, but nothing lasting. And I stop whenever I get any sort of sharp pain in it. Try taping it (there's lots of info on here about how to tape it, personally I avoid buddy taping) and just take it slow and do what feels good. Or at least not bad. The weakness goes away slowly, but mine feels stronger every time I climb. I also avoid climbing back to back days and be sure to take at least 1 rest day between sessions. It's hard, if you're like me, and get bored with easy routes/problems, but better than not climbing at all/injuring it again. Hope this helps!
