Hand surgery

Postby lolabolla » Sun Sep 09, 2012 11:49 am

Hi all,

I had surgery to remove a bening tumour from the base of my forefinger on the 4th Sept and it hurts like h*ll, anyway.

I have had appointment letters from hospital that the stitches need to come out on the 21st and that I will be having phisio on the 18th.

This doesn't sound quite right to me as this means the stitches will have been in for 18 days :yikes:

Of couurse I will contact the hospital tomorrow but in the meantime, has anyone else had this type of surgery and is it quite normal to leave the stitches in for that length of time.

Thanks, Lola xx

So I phoned the hospital and yes the stitches do have to stay in for at least 2 weeks.

Rather than wait till the 21st when I will be seeing the surgeon again I will be having the stitches out at my doctors surgery on the 18th as I also have an appointment for physio on my hand on the same day.

To be honest I wish that I had never had the op in the first place because this pain is so bad, I would not wish it on my worse enemy.

Hope the pain starts to ease off soon and you get some benefit from the op!!

As if we dont have enough to put up with plus the pain we feel is greater than people without fibro which also doesnt help. I hope things get better for you soon it must be hard to type on here as well.

I'd try :wine: then :beer: then :wine: :cake: followed by :coffee_cup:

Good Luck
