Hi-ho, time for another general update.
I had a nerve conduction study done on both hands, but it came up negative (which is what the surgeon expected.)
Unfortunately, this means they still don't know what's wrong with my left hand.
I also got a brace made up yesterday (i433.photobucket.com/albums/qq…
), but I'm not sure if it's supposed to feel like this?
It's pressing pretty fiercely on my thumb joint, which is apparently what the physio was going for, but it's also straightening out my thumb (which is always curved). It's really painful, but I'm not sure if it's like, your-thumb-is-being-vaguely-repaired-and-supported pain, or if it's like, dude-your-hand-is-not-supposed-to-be-this-shape pain.
I've stopped taking Celebrex because it didn't seem to help very much, but now I can't really tell what pain is from what.
The brace is also messing with my scar tissue and it hurts like a bitch. I'm now wearing, on one hand/thumb; two band-aids, one 'sock', one brace, and one velcro strap. It's so uncomfortable, geez.
Anyway, waiting on other appointments. Still know almost nothing.
I should be doing assignments right now, but I'm depressed and annoyed and having trouble focussing.
Tell me anecdotes that've happened to you recently?
That's far more interesting than any essay topic.
