Just had surgery on right hand on 5th November at QEQM, was anxious of the procedure as had Local Aesthetic, but all was good did not hurt at all was like having Carpal injections, I removed the outer heavy bandage yesterday as they advised and am left with softer under bandage which advised to keep on until I have stitches out of which there is only three on 20th November at GP's Surgery. I can feel that I am getting a little feeling back in my index, middle and ring fingers as they were completely numb and could not feel anything, It is early days but I have a good feeling that all is going to plan and so glad I opted for surgery, Thank you Dr Bland.

I'm glad to hear that wasn't too traumatic an experience. I see the referral for surgery was made on 24th September so it looks as though it took about 7 weeks on that waiting list which is not too bad - we can't always predict how long its going to take at QEQM as we don't directly control the list. Do we know which surgeon eventually carried out the operation? JB

I thought it was very quick, and the Surgeon was Mr Stanton, I have a follow up appointment on 16th December at his clinic in QEQM Hospital, do I still keep intouch with you for my Left Hand and further updates on my Right.

Certainly keep in touch. I like to know how all my patients get on with their operations. I'm hoping to reach 10,000 operation outcomes recorded before I retire :-) I can also help arrange treatment for the other hand anytime but sometimes the hand surgeons do just offer to go straight on and do the other side.

I hope you do not retire before I get my other hand sorted as you have done so much for me getting my right hand sorted, which I really appreciate, I usually keep intouch with Emma when the injections start wearing off, shall keep doing that or speak to you on this forum. by the way had stitches out on my right hand, wasn't quite healed in a small part so nurse put strip stiches on and covered go back to nurse in GPs on 26-11-19, still have slight numbness and tingling at the top part of middle and ring finger on right hand, but its amazing how quick the feeling has come back.

Good to hear it's doing well. I wonder if it would be useful to have a library of photographs of post-operative wound appearances to give people an idea what to expect? JB
