Hi everyone. So today I had my stitches removed. Not as bad as I thought it was going to be. It felt a little pinchy but only took about 2 minutes. They applied Steri Strips to my cut because with this type of incision, there will be a little gap between the stitches. The doctor told me that I can get it wet as long as I dry it when I get out of the shower. I can officially drive again, which I'm ecstatic about, ( I really missed driving). Doctor does not want me to grasp anything with that hand...

Sensitive Eyes Sensorimotor OCD

Posted 12-23-2014 at 09:29 PM by danielgabriel97

Hi friends,

I suffer from sensorimotor OCD, and have struggled with most of the common symptoms. Recently, I have picked up a new sensitivity with my eyes, which is no longer the common blinking awareness, but rather extremely sensitive eyes, especially when in highly lit areas or when I am stressed. However, I know it is not normal eye strain, because at times my focus still switches back to swallowing, bladder, etc, and thus the awareness is completely OCD related. Has anyone...

Update 1

So here is my first update since my last entry. Today I am 10 days post op and my pain level resting is a 2. When I use my arm too much, my pain level becomes a 4-5. The swelling has gone down and I do not have any bruising that I can see. All of my nausea and dizziness is gone and I'm feeling much better.

My experience with Submuscular ulnar nerve transposition surgery

Posted 12-14-2014 at 03:48 PM by Tori358

I found out about two months ago that I was going to need surgery on my ulnar nerve due to my nerve being pinched. I went online trying to get as much information as possible so that I would know what to expect with this surgery and so there would be no surprises. I decided that I wanted to document my own experience with this surgery so that in the future, people needing to have this surgery can get a better idea of what to expect. Most of the experiences I read aboutnonline about this surgery,...

Story of my Wound - Accomplishment - Knitting

Posted 12-11-2014 at 05:00 AM by RABG (The Story of My Wound- the Beginning)

What an odd title, what does it mean? For me knitting gives me pleasure, a sense of worth, a goal, and then accomplishment.

I have been knitting for almost 40 years and in that time I have had my own business, designed endless Christmas stockings, knit for others, and then finally for me.

I quickly learned from my PD waiting room that so many people are defined by their pain or condition. I decided that wasn't for me. I had to have something that would give me a sense...
