Checking in after surgery

Surgery was yesterday and the worst part was the needles of local anesthesia. Ye-ouch! Literally triggered a migraine!

Today, I feel barfy and tired thanks to Tylenol 3. And yeah, don’t ask me to sign my name. Can’t be done! Bummer It’s my dominant hand!

If interested, this is what the surgery was about: Dupuytren’s (du-pwe-TRANZ) contracture is a condition that gradually causes connective tissue (fascia) under the skin of your palm to thicken and become scar-like. Although Dupuytren’s isn’t always painful, it does restrict movement. The thickened tissue forces several fingers — usually your ring and pinky fingers — to curl in toward your palm. The bending caused by the thick tissue is called contracture.
