    cmc surgery

    Curious how people have endured the first few days after cmc surgery. My doctor said I would hate him and that is not encouraging to me. Putting it off as long as I can.

    Dear con808,

    I haven't had that surgery, but I read that it takes months to recover.
    The closest I had was a broken wrist, from which I am now recovered, but I had to have a plate inserted then later had to have the plate removed. So that is a different type of surgery.

    If you need this done, you need it. But I would get at least one other medical opinion, and ask about possible complications and what would need to be done.

    Once there is a plan my advice is follow medical directions exactly, make sure to keep the area clean. dry and protected from injury.

    Take pain meds exactly as directed even if you have to use a timer inbetween doses. Yes surgery is not easy. but it is a lot easier if you plan for the surgery and recovery. So ask your doctor exactly what to expect, and also what 'could' happen so you are prepared.

    Have plenty of things planned to occupy your mind.
    The internet isn't all there is to do. LOL
