  • Surgery tomorrow morning...

    It's nothing major, but I have a cyst in my right hand that's blocking blood flow to my pinkie and ring fingers - I'm left-handed though, and I've been practicing with the mouse on my left, so hopefully not too big a deal! Also, Alt key is a beautiful thing!!

    It's either damage to the artery or just a benign cyst - either way, I can't afford to let it get any worse than it is, so I don't want to put it off - there are a lot of vessels, tendons, and such in the hand.

    When I went to the fair recently (surgery had already been scheduled) my hands got really cold on the rides (yes I had leather gloves on just in case, since my hands are always cold). When I took my gloves off my 2 fingers looked like cadaver fingers - they were very yellow, and there was no hot water in the ladies room. They got better after a few minutes in the car, though!

    Wish me luck! (just a little nervous)
    I have kleptomania, but when it gets bad, I take something for it.

      Thanks, Stella, I'm staying at my mom's (she is so excited lol) but I reserved the right to sleep in my own bed, so she couldn't keep me captive! Doubt I'll want to drive home tomorrow, though. I'm sure I'll take my laptop with me so if she's not pumping me with pain pills (her MO) I'll keep in touch!

                Hopefully by the time you return to this thread, it's over and done with. I've had several hand/arm surgeries. The first 24 hours, as with most any surgery, can be a tad uncomfortable, and then each day is better and better.
