Hi guys! Freedancer here with a surgery update. My LRTI on my left hand was today and it went really well. I made the Doctor laugh when he explained that my Trapesium joint was basically so destroyed that there was nothing left. So I said " So you're telling me that the joint was roached?" He grinned and had a good chuckle! 😉😂😁 The surgery went well. He took out the Trapesium and replaced it with a rolled up tendon to fill the space and also had to take some of the adjacent joint as well. He also pulled the STT joint back into alignment as it was off by 20 degrees and did some work on the Volular Plate. Now, I have been practicing with different tasks using one hand. I cannot even start therapy with my VA therapist for 8 weeks. I can put on my wafer and wax seal and I switched to the closed bags and can change them just fine. I am just not sure if they hold the same volume as the drainable ones. I can tell you that they are so comfortable! I may switch permanently! The hardest thing right now is putting on my pants and underware. It is really hard to pull them up with one hand for sure! Of course, lifting anything is out of the question for a while. I actually taught myself how to put on my CPAP mask one handed. Most of my issue with this is with my hair. I need two hands to put it up and out of the way but I figured out a way to put on the mask! So, right now the pain isn't so bad but it is still numb and will probably wake up soon and teach me a lesson in humbleness! Hope you all are well!!
