Post Op Meds

     I know it looks gross. Kind of freakish. Those of you who have seen prior posts know I have a condition called trigger finger. It causes my hands to catch when opening or closing, then to snap in place similar to a trigger mechanism.

     I have been putting off surgery, have had numerous cortisone shots, and have generally been waiting (hoping) for it to go away on its own. Realising the pain was getting the best of me, I went back to my Dr. Friday and decided to schedule surgery. Well before I had a chance to iron out the details, I woke up on Sunday morning with a locked up finger. Totally stuck, can't even force it open with my other hand. So off to surgery I go asap. This Thursday to be exact.

     Why am I sharing all this? It's my pre excuse. You see, I just left my pre op apt. and picked up my post op meds. Let me put it like this-if I can post, it's gonna be entertaining if nothing else!

     No, I'm sharing because that's what us bloggers do. Especially when faced with challenges harder than most. Normally I would be nervous, but my pain is making me look forward to the relief I have been promised surgery will being. Ahh,......to have normal hands again!


  1. I hope you are doing well. This happened to my son - both hands - when he was 5. Freaked me out. He wore splints at night and fortunately got over it. I hope you heal fast.

  2. Oh, thanks for sharing. Never knew of such sickness. Hope you surgically correct it soon. Well at least when you share stories like this you created awareness to others. Hope you get well soon.
