First the good news.
I was back to the fracture clinic on Friday for a check up. The doctor was pleased with how my hand was progressing and said that I was ok with just the splint. In fact I didn't need to use that all the time, just to protect my hand. I could get away with only taping my fingers up. I can also start exercising my fingers to get them moving again, by squeezing a balled sock.
Now the bad news.
I'm moving, but it's hurting. Specifically when I move the wrong way and put pressure on the break. :yikes: And I've given myself a couple of knocks getting used moving without the protection of a cast. 😥
I'm still not sleeping great, which has left me a bit run-down and susceptible… to stuff like the dose I seemed to have picked up yesterday. :yuck:
So on top of everything my head aches, I'm stuffed up, and my stomach is "off" (the less said about that the better 😉 )
The worst thing though is that I have to make another whiny blog post about all my troubles. :down:
I hope the rest of the OC is faring better out there.
PS I have another appointment in three weeks, hopefully that will be the end of this broken hand
