That's it ,I finally agreed to have surgery after a few months of thinking about it.
On 7th of June I will go in for total wrist fusion, finger tendon repair and synovectomy with general anesthetic
The thing is that I am afraid of surgery and afraid of anything sharp .
The hand surgeon didn't tell me much about the op and recovery time.
I am going on holiday to France from 22 July for 5 weeks and I wonder if I will be able to enjoy it as it will be only 6 weeks after surgery. I have no idea if I will still be in cast...
Will I be able to go to the beach and pool? Or will I be the miserable one looking from far away.
I know that I need 3 months of work (working with babies and toddlers).
When I saw the surgeon I was upset and I couldn't ask any questions, now I try to phone his secretary or hospital but nobody can answer my questions. Also I had my pre op but the lady wasn't helpful at all and said her job was pre op meeting and she didn't know about after op.
If you had those surgery done please could you let me know how it went and how you were after 6 weeks?
Thank you very much
