Re: going through the basal joint surgery process - at least, my story

Do you also need surgery on your left hand?

Best to rest your left hand now & not strain it.

Hoping you will feel better tomorrow.

Hi Haydena,
Yes, I do need my left hand done but not until my right hand is completely healed. This is not an easy surgery as you well know. I think just relying so much on others has been difficult as well. It was difficult to not have use of my hand through the holiday as well. My husband has been a huge help but I love being able to do more and more as you know. I'll take your advice and be patient!!

How long ago was your surgery?
