Surgery pretty much stinks...

Went under the knife AGAIN at 0730. A 60-90 minute surgery turned into over 2 hours. *sigh*
So today they went in and found that THREE tendons were stuck to the metal plate they used to fix my broken wrist. Totally explained why I couldn't move my thumb!
One of the tendons became frayed from the adhesion, so the surgeon stitched it up, and it should be fine after it heals.
They didn't put me under completely and they didn't do a nerve block this time, just Novocaine and a mild sedative. I woke a few times during surgery. THAT freaked me out! SERIOUSLY!!
But because I only had the Novocaine, I am now feeling some major pain. I am resting at home, my Mom (visiting from San Diego) is babying me (THANKS, MOM!!!) and I might just take a nap with Monster 2 when she takes hers.
I just hope I'm done with this surgery nonsense!! LOL


  1. so sorry to hear about your surgery...I don't think surgery is ever fun.....I wanted to come by and welcome you to happy you are here....and hope you feel better soon.

  2. Hi from sits! Have a great day, hope your hand is better soon.
