Deckman Guitarists problems with hands (80* d) RE: Guitarists problems with hands 15 Jul 18


I have to share a humorous story of what happened to me the first time that my hand doctor injected cortisone into my first trigger thumb episode . Believe me, this is a TRUE story, and I hope it gives some smiles to this serious thread.

My hand doctor, who shall remain nameless, did a very effective trick on me. He'd warned me that the shot would hurt like heck, but I said: " go ahead I'm ready." His nurse, a very handsome lady, was standing beside me, just out of my vision. As he raised the needle to plunge it into my thumb. he told his nurse to help hold my hand and wrist tight to the table.

As he pushed the needle in, his nurse leaned her entire 'chest' into my face true. I was so startled I didn't know which way to look and I barely felt the pain. In seconds, the needle was out, the nurse was cleaning up the table, and they both were laughing.

Then he said, and I quote: "It works every time!"


Postscript a few years later, I had to have another injection into my other thumb. By this time that nurse had moved on. Without her assistance, this injection hurt like heck!   bob(deckman)nelson
