OK, I did it! At Clearwater's Revival I took part in two sets and did not make too much of a fool of myself on the concertina. The first time I've played concertina in public since last July.

Unfortunately, it is looking increasingly likely that the right rotator cuff is next on the agenda.

Yeah, Kat! One of the most challenging things about this process was figuring out how to turn the ignition key without pain. The surgery limited wrist rotation and made it difficult. I now have two techniques which work.

Thank you. I am being very cautious about it. I had it once in a shoulder and it hurt like heck and didn't do much good. The hand therapist said, though, in the thumb there is just the one tendon and the results are usually pretty good using cortisone. I am not in any rush. Still doing the exercises and using a cloth splint to keep it from locking.

Be careful with cortisone. I used it for tennis elbow many years ago. Each shot was less effective and more painful.

That's great! I am about ready to go back to the hand doc and try some cortisone for my thumb tendon...I've got trigger thumb...how dumb does that sound?!**bg** Still need to do something with my left index finger. The end acts as if it's been fused into a bent position, no arthritis or anything; just aggro on the tendons. Hard to fiddle, etc.

Keep playing and letting us know how it's going. You are an inspiration!

It looks as though I've got the keyboard position about right for two handed typing.

I refuse to be disabled. Somewhat l

Good to hear of your progression. That thumb is a pretty handy thing, isn't it? I still wear a cloth open-ended "sock" on my right one, for now, as the tendons are in tough shape. It keeps me from bending it incorrectly which can cause extreme and immediate pain! BUT therapy is helping AND using a voice recognition program to type. (Ya gotta birthday coming up or something so you can ask for it as a pressie?)

Good luck with the rest of your recovery!

Yeah, the cast came off yesterday. The pins are out. Two weeks with a splint and I hope to be able to keep the wristy unsupported.

When the cast came off, the first thing I did was gently scratch--what a luxury.

One thing I had not counted on was how much the loss of wrist flex changes the way the right hand moves. I now have to learn new postures so I can type two handed again.

The past 5 months have given me great respect for the theory that the opposable thumb was a major step in the development of homo sap.

Very definitely limited wrist flexion due to the fusion and the joint looks quite ugly.

As they say in Maine, it feels some bettah, though.

Bad news-Good news. Yesterday, I was suddenly in pain where the pins enter the wrist. Called the doc this AM. He told me to come right in. After removing the cast, it was obvious that something bad was going on. Dr. Rick examined the area and prescribed an antibiotic. The new cast still fits into my jacket. It's nice to deal with a doc who gives a damn, but I've been lucky that way.

Glad to hear you are in a shorter cast and using some of those muscles again. Sorry about the itching, though.

That is good news! As to the itching, when my kids had chickenpox, I set the hair blow dryer on cool and aimed it at the itching. It seemed to help a bit. If you can get to any of the itchy bits, a little dab of witch hazel on a cotton ball will help relieve it to.

If you don't mind spending a little bit of money, there are some incredible products available at www.amerigel.com which relieve itching and greatly speed the healing process. From past experience, I can attest to it being worth every penny.

Anyway, good for you and thanks for letting us know,

The worst is actually the itching.
When the old cast came off, there were large flakes of dead skin all about. Lady Hillary and I insisted on a thorough wash and scrub before the new cast went on. It still itches.
