Hi All, especially "Catlover" because I know you're interested in this.
Now 6 weeks since op and had the pins removed on Friday. Was told they would slide out but, that wasn't the case. Lot of tugging and pulling - at one point I asked the doctor if I could bite on his arm. Anyway, my hand is now swollen with fingers once more resembling pork sausages!!
I'm back on painkillers (just regular doses of paracetamol cos I'm not much good with anything stronger) but I'm sure the pain will subside once the after-effects of the pulling and tugging fade.
Next step is physio and I'll hopefully get my appointment through asap. My boss has been in touch to see if I might consider coming back to do light work. I don't like being off sick, but I'm not going back before I'm firing on all cylinders again!!
