So, I finally found out friday that I've been working with a fractured thumb since my fall back in JULY when I also fractured my skull!?!?
The skull fracture is finally healed, some of the brain damage is permanent. Minor, though, thank god!
The thumb, however.
I've been working with it this whole time because the original xray report was "negative for fracture "!? I get that people have bad days and things get missed, but...
Sigh. Looking for options, probably going to have to have surgery to remove the bone fragment that's still floating in there. Then deal with all the shredded tendons and ligaments from the fragment moving around in there all this time.
Finally diagnosed, so no moving it, splint it (trying to find one that doesn't have to pull on over the fracture!), ice it, take nsaid prescription, and wait and see.
Can 2020 be done, please? I'm afraid I'm not going to survive much more
Slowly trying to get things back under control, so I can concentrate on my weight again.
Hugs, prayers, and support needed and appreciated!!
Stay safe, sparkies!
