I have a frayed tendon in my wrist due to dequervain's disease (Where the tendon sheath is too small for the tendon to pass through and the friction causes fraying which can lead to the tendon snapping), and they're going to remove the damaged part of the tendon and do what's called dequervain's release where they enlarge the tendon sheath to allow the tendon to properly move through it.

Recovery takes anywhere from 2 to 6 months. :/

holy shit, that sucks. well, i'm sure after the recovery period you'll be smiling though. must have sucked to deal with it in the first place.

i played tennis in high school and lost all of the cartelidge on the ball joint of my ankles. now i can't stand up or walk for more than a few hours or i'll sit down (doesn't hurt), then when i get back up it feels like my damn feet are gonna fall off. it sucks. no solution. oh well, i guess the answer is just don't do what makes it hurt...

They have cartilage replacement surgeries now, but they're painful and the recovery is long and brutal. I'm just glad to be getting this fixed because it was causing permanent swelling in my wrist, pains that would radiate all the way up to my shoulder, would cause my fingers to lock and my hand to be numb, tingle, burn, ache, and several other odd sensations. It really fucked with me for a while. The recovery's nothing compared to just dealing with it. I just hate the actual surgery part of it because.. well, they're gonna cut me up and stitch me back together. Yikes.

don't forget they're going to run a medical grade die grinder though a hole in one of your bones.

i know they have cart replacement surgery. it does suck, it's certainly not worth it for the shit i go through.

Ack.. don't remind me. LOL.. good thing I won't be awake to hear that grinder. I'm gonna be out for the whole thing from preop to recovery. I don't even wanna know I'm in that ice cold sterile room, much less what's happening to me. Yeesh.

Thanks.. :/ I know I'm not gonna sleep well tonight. Erghck. I hope I don't die or something. Hospitals scare me.. don't like 'em at all.. and don't like the fact that I'm gonna be alone through most of it. Red can't come into preop and can only come up to recovery after I've been there for an hour.. so there's a good 4 hours where I have to be in that scary place all by myself. Blargh.

Ow. I've seen lots of skateboarding fuck up videos that looked pretty painful. What never ceases to amaze me is that these crazy fucks get out of the hospital and get right back on their boards and do the same stupid shit in the same stupid scenario again. Can you say one too many head injuries?
