Recovering from surgery
October 6, 2012 at 3:15 PM

Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you all. But after my surgery on the 26th of Sept. on my left hand. I had some trouble with my hand so I can only type one handed still. I had Carpal Tunnel & Cubital Tunnel Surgery on my left hand and elbow. And I still have the stitches in. They don't come out until the 9th of Oct. when I see my surgeon again. The recovery is coming slower than I would like it to be. I still have trouble getting dressed & I can't even comb or wash my own damm hair by myself yet and that is very aggravating for me. At least I know what to expect to happen when I have the right hand and elbw done. except for the fact that I'm right handed. when that happens I'm really going be lost. Becuase I can't do anything left handed. Please keep me in your prayers. Thanks.  Colleen L.

    I hope you get better real soon, I know what your going through I didn't have carpel tunnel but in July I had hand/wrist surgery on the tendons, they had to decompress a tendon, remove a calcification that was pressing on a tendon and he had to do something else it slips my mind, but I had complications and had to be recasted on mt right hand/wrist no doubt, I have use of my fingers and can drive but as you say its a slow healing process...
    You will be in my prayers for a speedy recovery....take care and Bless!!!

    I'll keep you in my thoughts.  It's funny how we take opposable thumbs and wrist movement for granted.  Just take it slow and easy.  Hugsgood
