Welcome back, k-girl!

We've been wondering where you were. Glad you're feeling less funky, more spunky again.

I'll lose some flexibility but I think I'll still be able to slice and dice without pain.

Not sure when I'll be up to posting again. It's hard to type one-handed when it's your off hand.
Oh my gosh Andy, I just saw this, sorry I'm late to the party and you're probably sitting there in alot of pain right about now.
I can relate, for sure, I had surgery on my left wrist back many years ago. I'd be willing to bet that the technology is much better today.
All the best Andy!!

The surgery appears to have gone well. Wednesday was a lost day. Wed. nite was not comfortable. Thurs. and today have both been better. i haven't had to take any meds since 6:00AM. The real issue is my right hand is useless. taking a shower this AM was an adventure trying to keep my arm and bandaging dry while trying to wash everything else. SO has been super taking care of me. next step is PT Monday morning to get fitted for a removable brace and scheduling PT.

So glad to hear everything is going well. Get some plastic wrap and have SO wrap the bandaging up so you can take a reasonable shower. Just remember to remove it after the shower. And that is really good news regarding the pain meds.

Patience is the secret to PT. I just completed week two of PT and was surprised at just how much I had gained in confidence.

Take care. And give your SO a big hug as soon as you can. Prayers are coming your way.
