I lost half my middle and behind the nail before the first knuckle on my index finger. Happened the 27th of last month. At the er I was prescribed oxycodone 5's. After those were done I was given vicodin 5's. I told the doctor they weren't really working, and at the time he said tough it out until surgery. I had surgery today and went to the pharmacy they told me to and I was given more Vicodin 5's. Was told one every four hours.
Hello Doctor, When I was 7 I had an accident with my index finger and it was amputated. I was wondering if there was any procedure that will be able to make it look like a normal finger again. Thanks.
My healthy 35 year old husband has no blood flow to his right index finger. There is no diagnosis of what caused this. Treatment only seems to be amputation of the portion that does not have blood flow. He does not recall injuring it. Has had blood work done and is otherwise very healthy; however, he does smoke. It is also very painful.

I had a traumatic amputation to my R index finger 2-3mo prior and had to have the who distal bone removed so there would be skin to close over the site. I have lost significant use of the finger. cannot flex if past 90 degrees, have a hard know at the base of my index finger that extends to the base of the thumb and believe it is a tendon that is slowly shortening because it is no longer attached to the end of my finger.
My friend's "neurofibroma", as her doctor's call this disease, has this since birth. At first it was similar to a birthmark, and she lives and uses her hand as normal as she can. But as she grows older the mark grows bigger and looks awful. It was located at her right hand, affecting her thumb & index finger. Ten years ago she underwent surgical operation "debulking" and it bacame a little smaller. Now, it grows back even bigger, the size of a child's head.
These have lasted anywhere from 5 minutes to 2 weeks in one specific spot on my body, which has included inside of upper arms on one or both side, inner left knee, upper right thigh, left pinky, right index finger, left index finger, right heel, right toes, left palm, both knees to feet. again, some of these are much stronger and persist for longer, and then i'll have a week or so where i feel nothing anywhere. the sensations range from tingling to pulsing to a muscular pulling feeling.
My Smokey's tumor was dying and detaching itself and it seemed we were going to win, then it became infected. My choices were amputation or put her down. She is so full of life so I opted for the surgery and set a date of August 10. Aug. 12th I brought her home. She is walking some but I was happier to see her eating, drinking and the litter box is being used. She is still alittle weak but is trying to get back to normal. The vet saw no signs of cancer nodules in the surgery.
I would definitely try the jelly. It's worth a shot! =) This is my Skunkie routine-get a glob of the stuff on your index finger and put it in the side of the mouth. I usually give it to her while she's sitting down, and I grab her by the scruff of the neck, and then I stick it in her mouth. People will usually tell you to rub it on the paw, but that doesn't work because cats get PO'd and shake it off and the vaseline goes flying all over the place.
We could have packed this manual with a bunch of fluff and filler to take of the space of a hundred or so pages, but why? If we made this manual 100+ pages, what would you really do? You'd go to index, find the page that talks about enlarging your penis, and start there, wouldn't you? Of course you would. Therefor we ONLY put in the information that you want to know, and that's it. This manual is brief, to the point, and easy to read as well as comprehend.
