Is It Only Me...?

Saturday, January 05, 2013

It happened again.

Get this, gang.

I got my splint off. HURRAY! LOL

I puttered around the house, did a few dishes, etc. I was looking forward to washing my hair. I bent down and picked up a little gray fleece lap blanket that had fallen onto the floor. I didn't realize Isis (my gray cat) had burrowed into it... SNAP!

My thumb did the same exact thing it had before, only this time it hurt clear up to my elbow.

Back to the ortho's office, only the doctor is out of town so I see his P.A. instead and get prescribed for another THREE WEEKS with the splint and then I "HAVE TO" see the surgeon again for an evaluation... ugh.

Typing with one hand is giving my shoulder fits, not to mention what it ISN'T doing for the carpal tunnel! LOL

Got to stop, y'know?

    Me too, Orchidlady! LOL

Morticia, all my bone scans have always come back perfect... it's the stuff that holds the bones together that's the problem!... I guess I'll know more in a couple more weeks... LOL
Thanks, everyone! emoticon

    Oh my gosh!! I think you need some bone studies or something. This is horrible. I hope you have a speedy recovery.

    Hmmmm. Maybe you need some strengthening of the muscles around the thumb and wrist. Wearing a splint helps when you have swelling but everything gets weak. I don't know all the details so am hesitant to suggest exactly what exercises you need. Ho hum. I hated having my hand in a splint. Poor you.

    Ouch, Kathy!!!

Can't catch a break - huh?? (pun intented.......)

Can you fully function with the splint? I have one that is pretty versatile -- just can't get it wet......

Feel better soon!
