Thumbs Up!

My thumbs don’t work anymore — no cartilage left in the basal joint, the one that connects the thumb to the wrist. Anti-inflammatory medication hasn’t worked, and cortizone shots are only temporary.

So, I decided to have LRTI surgery –Ligament Reconstruction and Tendon Interposition. The operation was two days ago on my right hand. Temporary cast on for 8 days, then stitches removed and a lighter cast, rehab, etc.

You may be seeing a lot of typos in upcoming blogs. (This blog was written prior to surgery — I just had to insert the photo.)
