So it's still a bigger slice than I expected, somehow that hasn't changed in four more days. And I now have a spectacular bruise on my wrist, a lovely mottled blue/green upside down tear drop shape. Enough of the whining, I am actually typing with it! It feels very stiff but the typing motion causes zero pain. Unlike the picking up motion or the stretching motion. I wonder if it will ever feel normal again? After 10 years or so of putting off this surgery, do I even know what normal feels like?
The weirdest thing of all ....is not going to work. It's only been 5 days off but it's so unlike a vacation that I feel somewhat lost. I don't know how people stay home (especially if the Olypmics aren't on TV ~ Go Canada Go) Maybe in another week or so of healing I will be able to answer that question. I now look ahead to getting the other one done. I actually felt sick to my stomach when I booked the next appointment. The not knowing was better for me (really!!). I could live another lifetime without experiencing those needles in my hand. But on the bright side, I have no more nighttime pain in my right hand and that is amazing.
