Pain, pain and more pain. I had my left (dominant) hand surgery done yesterday and I'm having a very bad day today. The joint at the base of the thumb had to be removed and replaced by a "spare" tendon in my forearm, due to severe osteoarthritis. The right hand was done in August and has healed very nicely and is now far more useful and less painful than it was before surgery. It was horrible for the first few days but within 4 weeks was doing pretty well. Unfortunately this one is hurting even more than the right one did. Gifts of good healing energy will be much appreciated here! I just want the pain to go down enough that I can think a little and breath normally.
