Re: Basal Joint surgery

Hi Haydena,

I don't think it's the weather, but I'm being very good about icing and elevating-I bought one of those foam cubes that someone recommended in a thread here and it is a lifesaver. When I use it at night there is no chance that my arm will go down and start to swell in my sleep. I have had a lot of experience with surgery and I don't mess around with my recovery. I want this hand to be perfect.

I went out today with my husband and bought a coat with a larger sleeve today, so I'm going to be much more comfortable outdoors now. We have snow coming tomorrow, so I got it just in the nick of time.

Have a great weekend. I look forward to hearing from you after your appointment.

Linda
