I’ll keep this brief because it’s hurting to type. Last week’s surgery went really smoothly. Text book perfect the surgeon said. I wasn’t entirely sure on what I’d done to myself but the surgeon informs me that the tendon had indeed detatched from the bone at the elbow but it has all been repaired and eventually I’ll be as good as new. I’m still a bit disappointed that they didn’t put bionic arms on. Oh well.
From the surgeon’s research, he can only find 4 other documented cases of someone having this injury in both arms at the same time. Why do I over achieve in stupid areas like this?
The plaster came off a couple of days ago and sleeping without the plaster has proven to in fact, be a lot more painful than with it. It’s amazing how readily you do things that now, while recovering, hurt your arms. In good news, I have been able to do all the things I was worried about having my mother do, for myself. The awkward toilet incidents have not had to happen.
I’ll post again when I can, or more likely in about 5 or 6 days when I’m hoping to be back at home looking after myself.
