Surgery Time

We'll be taking a few days off to have surgery on our wrist for DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis.

Surgical management involves incising the skin, identifying and cutting the diseased tendon sheath under local anesthesia, and applying a compression bandage. Patients can usually return to their normal activities within 2-3 weeks after surgery. This procedure is successful 90% of the time.

Actually, we're opting for general anesthesia, and we're told our entire arm will be bandaged. That's our right arm, and we're right-handed. Nonetheless, we're pleased to report that our wonderful guest blogger TChris has agreed to take over for Wednesday and Thursday, so TalkLeft won't be going dark. We expect to be back by Friday, but if that's not possible, keep checking in as we'll be back as soon as we can resume typing.
