… and I’m back

comments 10

Here I am, hello! As promised, I’m back. I’ve taken a few days off from work, life and everything else to have and recover from a little operation that I had last week.

Just a quick thank you to all the people who sent me tweets, texts, Facebook messages and comments here to wish me luck and all that jazz. Thank y’all very much! They gave me the biggest warm and fuzzy feeling ever. So thank you!

So what did I have done?

A couple of years back I had a little accident. My dog decided I looked good enough to take a bite of. Ever since then my wrist hasn’t been right. Two years after going backwards and forwards to doctors, physios and consultants I finally got some more tests done late last year. I had an MRI scan in December which showed a small tear in my cartilage. No matter how small it was, it was still bloody painful! But thankfully, fixable. And easily.

Last week I had some keyhole surgery to fix that. I think, hopefully it has. I won’t know exactly what happened in the surgery until next week when I meet with my consultant. (He was out of my surgery and on his way home before I even came to from the anaesthetic!) That’s when I’ll get the stitches out. Hurrah! They may be tiny stitches but dang they pull!

It’s a bit painful moving the wrist. Every now and then I manage to bash my hand somewhere which makes my face look like I just ate a lemon. Typing is a little tricky. In that I am currently doing most of it with my left hand. And slowly. But getting there. The benefits of keyhole surgery over open surgery is that I can do this already.

Fingers crossed everything’s fixed and sorted. Downside? I have to put aside my deposit on that bionic arm I had my eye on.


  1. Woo for it all (hopefully) finally being sorted! I apparently did not comment on your post about going off to have it done, even though I clearly remember typing one, so I can only conclude that WordPress (or possibly my phone) ate it and this will have to be my GOOD LUCK and WOO YOU’RE BACK comment all in one πŸ™‚

  2. Ohhhh, wow. A Bionic arm would be COOL. Would it come with the Six Million Dollar Man sound effect? That would be awesome!

    Glad things – apparently – went well so far. I’m sure you’ll feel better in no time, and then you’ll be glad that you finally had it taken care of! πŸ˜€

  3. Good to hear that the operation went good. Hopefully the pain will be gone soon! Looking forward to new posts!

  4. Great to hear from you and take care, Jaina. Just take it slow and give yourself time to heal. No need to rush things.

  5. Glad you’re feeling better, Jaina! Will be thinking of you. Take care as you recover and don’t type too much πŸ™‚

    Sounds really painful, but glad to hear you’re doing well. Look forward to your reviews on all the movies you’ve been able to see!

  6. The bionic arm would have been sweet! πŸ˜‰

    I’m so glad to hear you’re doing well post-op, Jaina. The pain of accidently smashing your wrist against something though… OUCH. I wish you a very speedy recovery – the fact that even surgery can’t keep you from blogging is surely a good sign where that’s concerned πŸ˜‰

  7. Oh my, your dog bit you?? You poor thing! Well glad to hear you’re back and blogging again Jaina!
