I had surgery on my hand last month. What was supposed to be a 30 minute procedure ended up taking 4 hours.
The doctor said I had wierd anatomy.
He said he couldn't find my thumb nerve and had to cut way over to the little finger side of my hand.
I always knew I was ....different. :)
The one thing I asked for right away was to Please, Pulease wash my hand. Even though it was bandaged up like a golf club cover, I had the heebie jeebies thinking my hand smelled because I couldn't wash it.
Yes I am a hand washing freak! They spread a lot of germs around. Yuck!
The doctor actually smelled my hand.
He said it didn't smell.
But he washed it before he removed half of the stitches.
That felt so good!
But do you know what made all this totally worth the hassle?
I can feel with my thumb and index finger again!
No more dropping glasses and everything else I tried to hold onto.
No more typing with my ..uh...middle digit and the uncoordinated finger next to it.
I feel whole again.
This whole process took so long because two Neurosurgeons and two Orthopedic surgeons could not decide if it was my neck or my hand. I finally just chose the Orthpedic surgeon and I think I chose wisely!
I will try to start visiting more blogs and try to get back up to speed.
If you have a weak stomach you may not want to look. But thanks for stopping by and thank you for all your prayers and well wishes.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
