My Frankenstein Wrist
Update - July 30, 2005
In response to a post, here is a photo of my scar. It looks a little bad, and it's my own fault because I couldn't help scratching it as it healed. At first I thought that my surgery was a miracle, but within the last month or so I've been having a lot of trouble with my hand again. I don't think that I'm more active than before, but I've been experiencing pain again and a lot of stiffness in the mornings. I really need to go to the doctor before my follow up in September.
Thanks to everyone who have sent me well wishes. I'm fine and in minimal pain. Today I got my bandage off and can freely move my hand, which is wonderful. As you can see, I have blue stitches, and eventually the purple marker will wash off. When the doctor took the bandage off, my first thought was that I was stitched up with purple yarn! I'm a moron, I know!
