Post-Operation Check

Had my post-op check on the thumb yesterday.

Stitches holding firm, skin healing well and no infection.

A nice, polymer cast that's a bit more manageable than the lump of plaster of Paris I've been sporting for the last week.

The X-ray shows what they term a 'bullet', which is essentially a staple that holds the ligament in place and will be in position for the rest of my life. Back to the hospital next Wednesday to have the stitches removed and then some physiotherapy to regain the mobility.

Certainly a huge difference from the post-injury X-ray.
