Talk to the Hand:

I'll start out directly by saying, this problem I am about to detail is miniscule compared to life threatening things, or actual losses of loved ones that have been posted on the boreds. But, I am a firm believer in the Power of Prayer, so I am asking for your help anyway in this relatively small situation.

I am scheduled to go in this Friday and have my left hand totally dismantled, or at least that's what it sounds like. Four surgeries in one. Removal of a returning small cyst in the top of the hand. Removal of an arthritic bone near that same site on top of the hand. Carpal tunnel surgery on the bottom of the hand. And most majorly, complete reconstruction of the joint at the base of the thumb, using a tendon graft from my arm.

That is a lot of stuff to be going on in one hand, so you can best believe I wouldn't be doing it if this thing wasn't literally throbbing like a toothache and not much use for gripping anything on a daily basis. Any prayers or pawsitive thoughts for a good outcome would be appreciated. Go Tigers!

ps: Now you know why I make jokes about how bad my golf game has gotten. :(

I think they are called the Golden Years because:

1) You make a lot of Doctors very rich (Increase their amount of gold.)

2) You pee an awful lot more, seems like. And it's golden.

76er, That’s about as serious as it gets, we use our hands for everything. My wife worked doing these types of surgeries for years(until her carpal tunnel Surgeries on both hands were to much for her to continue doing the surgeries) that’s a huge amount of work at one time but I believe with you it will go very well.

Thanks for sharing so we can pray in agreement with you for Gods hand to guide the surgeons and be with you through every moment during and after the surgery. I pray that you will have a smooth process and recovery, therapy and complete healing so your hand will be good as new without the pain you’ve suffered with. In Jesus Name, amen.

We look forward to you scoring higher in golf afterwards....lol I don’t golf anymore because of my back but my scores kept getting higher before I hurt it....lol

My wife had multiple surgeries on both hands(not as much work as your having by any means) for Carpal tunnel. It’s still tough for her to do tedious things for a long period and she has a little pain sometimes but overall she’s completely normal again. It’s amazing how the new surgical techniques have helped.

Go Tigers!

My 1st sentence was not a comment referring to the post above(handy dandy) lol

I have heard good reviews about The Hand Center in Greenville if that is where you are headed.

Losing use of a hand, even if temporary, is a big deal.

Done, and I'm hoping for great results for you getting full use of you hand again. It's tough when one of your grippers isn't working. I'm suffering with something between the elbow and hand right now, and it hurts like H&11 when I grab at anything, but lucky for me, I use my left hand pretty well also!!!
