What a lovely man my surgeon is. Not only did I not have to grovel and beg at his feet to persuade him to do both hands at the same time, but he also said he would do them under general anesthetic – apprently it’s an op they can also do under a local…..ewwww. No thanks! The whole op takes approx 10 minutes each hand so I will be home in my bed that night.
So now I am just waiting for a date and time from the hospital and all systems are go. Ohh there was a slight down side – there may be residule tingling in my hands which may or may not be permanent. Because the nerves have been compressed for so long it is one of the possible side effects – but as I explained to the children – that would be far better than the numbness and pain I am experiencing now.
Thank you all so much for your prayers of support and good wishes. It means so much to know I have friends out there thinking of me.
