I'm now two weeks into the aftermath of this op on my left wrist. I've been wearing a wrist brace more and more over the past few years with the pain getting worse and worse, so decided to bite the bullet and have the op.
I know some of you will have had the same or one or the other, so I'm just looking to hear your experiences.
Generally, I feel ok, amazingly the pain has been minimal - I think because my arm was totally numb for the first 24 hours and then I took the pain meds as directed. I only take paracetamol now.
I've had the stitches out and a nice cast put on but my problem is I don't see the consultant or anyone until mid June. My fingers are still a bit yellow and still swollen (I have very small thin hands normally) plus my middle and ring fingers refuse to move of their own accord - it's weird! I have no idea what I should be doing or more importantly, not doing.
I know we all can have slightly different experiences but if you've had this done, I'd appreciate your input.
