The hand operation!

Almost a week on from the operation, sore but able to move fingers. Physio has started so no complaints there.
This was the result of complications from a carpal tunnel operation last December!
This time & hopefully the last, the diagnoses was - Severe - Ulnar nerve entrapment at wrist / carpal tunnel.
The procedure - left ulnar nerve release / neurolysis at wrist, partial excision of hamate bone?
In english, nerve release & cut away some bone! Lol.

Last years carpal tunnel operation.

 24th August.
The stitches are now out!
Just need the swelling and bruising to go down then start the muscle rebuilding.

About Me

My photo
My name is Richard and I have been fishing for over thiry years. Some might say I was born with a fishing rod in my hand. I have fished my way through chalk stream trout to beach fishing for cod, and of course living so close to Weymouth, one of the largest charter boat fleets in England I have to fish a few charter boat trips a year. I have had the pleasure of bass fishing in France to fishing the Atlantic surf of Co. Clare, Eire. My fascination continues with the sea and the casting of plastic trying to fool the fish to attack my plastic lures.
