Fish Hook Injury
Bryan was fishing in Mozambique when he sustained a fish hook injury, which pierced the thumb extensor tendon. Bryan was treated by a General Physician in Mozambique who cleaned and sutured the wound but did not notice the tendon injury.
Once he returned to South Africa, he went to see Dr Anton Potgieter who repaired the tendon and referred him to hand therapy. Bryan made a full recovery and was sable to return to flying his plane, playing golf and fishing.
