    Just when it couldn't get any worse.
    http://www.lpsg.org/99940-fucked-up-my-left-hand.html

    Just moved to the new city for school, 10 days after I get stitches, I go to the hospital to plead my way out of getting them removed. My hand still very swollen, cut oozing, and stitches tight.

    I get to the hospital at 2pm, and after waiting 3 hours this snotty nurse tries to remove one stitch. I wait till the stitch is out and then rip my hand away. She wasn't to take them all out when the doctor ordered only every second stitch. So I told her what the doctor said, and she storms off throwing the tools in a sink in the room. She returns half an hour later saying that she is to remove them all. I tell her I don't think they are ready to come out, and then tell her she isn't touching my hand after I watch her take the tools back out from the dirty sink.

    Fast forward to her storming off and telling the doctor I'm refusing to have the stitches taken out.. he looks at my hand again and thinks I need to see the surgeon to discuss tendon damage. So I wait until 9.30pm to see him and he picks up my hand and asks me to do a bunch of tasks I am totally unable to do. Then he says, come in for surgery tomorrow at 1pm, we'll open up your hand and see what's going on. If there is damage, we'll have to cut around and find the tendon, then reattach it, put your hand in a splint for 3 weeks and you'll need physio.

    Fuck my life. School starts at 9am tomorrow. Life keeps falling farther and farther down.

    Anyways just thought I should let you guys know, seeing as most of you are the closest thing I have to friends.

    I'll try and post tomorrow night if I have half a brain.

    Well, Kinkster, there's not much to say except Good Luck.
    Quite the bad patch you're having now.
    Happens, and it's unpleasant, but remember: It really doesn't mean anything.
    And it will pass, eventually.
    Keep us posted.

    Ah shit. That blows! At least you have healthcare love, some of us are flying on a wing and prayer. I'm glad you stood up for yourself and listened to the doctors. Your experience does suck, but you are getting proper care and that's most important to your future. Hands are too valuable to fuck with. This is more important than school.

    Good luck and :hug:

    I know all about that! Whenever I go to the hospital for blood tests, I always ask them to wash their hands and put on fresh gloves before they stick me (which they are supposed to do for every patient anyway but which some of them don't do). The dirty looks they give me. If looks could kill I would be dead dozens of times over.

    I hope things go well for you tomorrow TK.

    Well done you for sticking to your guns, after all it is your body at the end of the day. They can't do anything without your concent, and that means INFORMED CONCENT. If your not happy with the treatment, it is your right to seek a second opinion.

    Good luck hope all goes well for you, remember everything is constabtly changing nothing stays the same. When you are at the bottom you can only go up. Not easy I know but stay positive.

    Keep us posted of how things go with your surgery and of your recovery process. We're hear to listen, after all is that not what good friends are for.

    Cheers

    T_K, You'll be in my prayers.

    Also you were absolutely right to not let that nurse use those tools on you after them having been in the sink. This is is an unpleasant setback but you have been through worse and survived. I know you will be ok.:cool:

    Congrats! Uhm, are you the bloke who hates condoms or have I confused you with another RUSH fan?

    Kink...
    Good Luck with everything. I'll keep you in my thoughts. I had to have my left hand re-attached after a car accident. So take it slow and easy. The most important part is the therapy after. The big picture is getting better. I can everything...even play the piano(badly)
    Keep the faith!
    XXXOOO

    Oh Girl! Good luck with everything! All will be well before you realise, don't be discouraged!

    You could use your hand as a conversation starter to get to meet new friends faster! Just an idea!

    Take care and keep us informed!

    TK, it sucks that you might need further surgery on your hand. But you was more than right in setting that nurse straight on using dirty instruments. Never allow anyone to over run your good judgment. You have my best wishes for a speedy recovery. Keep us updated.
