... Hi John, Thanks for your help! Yes I am familiar with that quick test, physiotherapist etc did it in the past. I asked a friend to squeeze my fingers on both hands for comparison. The affected (left hand) side is weaker. I wouldn't say as severe compared to last year prior to my surgery, but there is weakness. Also my little finger on affected hand does not spread apart...

... Thank you for your help John. :) Oh sorry, lol, I forgot to say in my original post that my surgeon, the one who did my operation, retired last summer, about 3 months after my surgery.
