I do hope this is sorted soon. I suppose in time you will be able to write well with your left hand but it’s pretty poor consolation.October 8, 2019 at 4:58 am #204405
Yeh sucks that I can’t use my right hand for anything at allOctober 8, 2019 at 7:41 am #204408
[quote quote=204405]Yeh sucks that I can’t use my right hand for anything at all
Ive been using my left hand all week too and it is a total pain, such simple things like pressing the button on my toothbrush causing my pain or picking up a kettle.. I really feel for youOctober 8, 2019 at 8:30 am #204412
I have a lot of sympathy for you both. Being injured is horrible.
I am sure you’ll both heal within time. Just keep an eye on your wounds and if they get worse, you know what to do: see a doctor. Obvious advice, but worth mentioning.
Take care, both of you.October 10, 2019 at 2:45 am #204463
Still waiting for the ultrasound scanDecember 30, 2019 at 4:49 am #206380
Haven’t posted in here for about a couple months, but still no scan yet, the pain is getting worse each day, it’s getting to the point where I can’t even put pressure on my wrist or even use it so the pain is so bad that I’ve had to resort to using Deep Freeze spray and Arnica Gel to try and help the pain but it slightly helps but not by much, to be honest – it sucks to be in this much pain since the 27th July and it’s now almost the end of December, so not had the ultrasound scan at all and hopefully in the new year I might get some answers as to what is causing this, I ended up in hospital at the end of September with the pain and x-rays showed nothing chipped, broken or fractured but a hematoma due to clots from two burst blood vessels and yet no word on ultrasound scan… Out of the four different doctors I’ve been to, only two suspect Ganglion Cyst…. Wish this would be sorted out so I can heal but who knows how long it’ll take??December 30, 2019 at 8:13 am #206384
I do hope you get good help soon 🙁December 30, 2019 at 9:42 am #206385
Id say Im amazed but sadly having seen the way my mum was (not) treated I think this is par for the course under the NHS.
The only thing you might be able to do if you can and live near the hospital is ask to be phoned in the event of any cancellations..January 16, 2020 at 7:32 am #206835
I called the hospital – Only to be informed that my ultrasound scan has been outsourced to a private hospital, it could mean travel of either 23miles or 50miles for the scan….January 16, 2020 at 1:10 pm #206847
@lakedistrict thats awful..
Any indication of when they might get round to doing it?
My OH was at the gp this morning his knee has gone again he was referred for photos and mri .We phoned the hospital and the xrays are tomorrow but the hospital said sorry they can’t fit him in for the mri tomorrow so he has to wait until next Tuesday ….they wondered why we laughedJanuary 17, 2020 at 2:03 pm #206880
I’m so sorry Lake District, I hope you’re able to get taken care of soon 🙁January 17, 2020 at 4:38 pm #206891
Well I got an update!!!
This morning the letter came for the Ultrasound Scan and it’s 50 miles away in Belfast so I’m hoping that my brother is able to take me as he knows Belfast better than I do, so the ultrasound scan could be happening within the next two weeks…. Finally getting somewhere and it’s been a tough six months so hopefully I get the results there and then, just glad that it’s finally happening after 6 months of waiting….January 18, 2020 at 9:59 am #206913
Im so glad you got news. Six months is an awful long time to wait.January 18, 2020 at 10:48 pm #206931
Back in 2016, I had to wait 6 months for eye surgery

Oh my, I’m so terribly sorry Lake District. How can they make you wait so long? That’s unbelievable, I’m just so blown away about that.
