It's a week now since I had the trapeziectomy on my right hand and I have to say thus far it feels like the surgery was a great success. I have far more use in the hand than I had been led to believe and am, thankfully, pretty much pain free despite having now halved my prescribed pain relief.
Am I pleased with my progress? Yes I most certainly am. I'm much further forward than I expected to be at this stage.
I'll be returning to the hospital on Monday 26th June to have the initial plaster cast removed and to have the hand/wrist redressed. I'm expecting this to be my next real milestone since I'm not sure quite what to expect in the way of a new 'dressing.'
