Operation… Bone Graft….!
I haven’t Blogged for a while as I have been busy in work…. Exporting cotton from Brazil to all ports in the world….
But since my last blog I have had an appointment with a Wrist and Hand specialist due to un-comfort in my left wrist (I’m Right handed lads, so no that not the cause
). I was sent for an X-ray and it seems I have a broken bone in my wrist (The scaphiod to be exact). According to the X-rays and the consultant’s opinion it looks to have been broken for 2 – 3 years, now I am no biologist or Orthopaedist? But how can I have managed with a broken bone for that long?
Well the outcome is I am having an operation on Friday (26/08) to have a chunk of bone taken from my pelvis and grafted into my wrist and bolted into place. Now I haven’t had an operation in my adult life, so there is a bit of trepidation on my side. But being the Viking I am, I will man up and meet the challenge head on…..
Now for the bad news, due to the cast I will have on my arm, it could make playing the Xbox impossible… and I am in cast for 8 weeks… Please don’t cry for me, as I will no doubt find away to game…. Hopefully……
I will be spending a lot more time on here after Friday, so I hope to speak to you all soon.
