Thread Name: BS: Kendall's operation
Subject: RE: BS: Kendall's operation
Wow, excellent news Kendall. Maybe I will get to hear you sing some time after all! I'm so pleased for you both.

The body's healing abilities are amazing, I find. A few months ago, I had the third of three operations on my wrist after breaking it badly nearly three years ago. It was very slow healing, but the metal plates in there were damaging the tendons and needed to come out. The doc said that if I wanted to have full use of my thumb, which wouldn't bend properly, I would probably need to have another operation some time to fix some of the damage to the tendons as they don't grow back - but there has been so much improvement beyond what was expected, that I've decided not to bother now.
