Finger amputation recovery

Common Questions and Answers about Finger amputation recovery


Avatar n tn Any thoughts as to why they would not with a 4yr and a 70% subtotal amputation. I am furious. The family doctor said the finger the way it is now will be deformed.
Avatar n tn The reason for my resecetion is it doubled in size and it was painful and stiff in the morning. So far my post surgical recovery has not been so bad some throbbing pain to the finger the first 72 hours. Some noted swelling and bruising to the site which is not uncommon after surgery. I still have the sutures in place I will have my post op follow up 21 May 2009. I will post pics of my operative site next time. Questions are welcome! P.S. Path results are still pending.
Avatar n tn Had surgery friday afternoon. was so excited in recovery, seeing my finger move at pip and dip for first time in 10 months... doc said to keep flexing it making fist, etc, so we dont get the scar tissue forming, etc. surgery was big, as pinky sliced tip to end, palm opened up about 3 inches, and wrist also opened up to pull tendon through. extensive scarring on one of the flexor tendons rendered it non-operable for tenolysis, so it was removed. remaining tendon lysed.

Avatar n tn Hello, Recovery from amputation depends on the type of procedure and anesthesia used. Ideally, the wound should fully heal in about four to eight weeks. But the physical and emotional adjustment to losing a limb can be a long process. You can do exercises to improve muscle strength and control after consulting a physiotherapist. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
636190 tn?1222791368 How long does an amputation of the butt take to heal??? The Doctors aren't telling us anything and they have been keeping her sedated and under since Friday. (It is now Monday night) Please if anyone knows anything like this or has any information inform me....
410475 tn?1262945967 In my opinion (and others) yes, they're to old. De clawing is an amputation, the human equivalent is losing the finger at the first knuckle. With older cats, it's a huge psychological change. The cat will likely become neurotic and hostile. There is a product called "soft claws", there's a post on here about it. It involves gluing a plastic sheathe onto the claws so they can't do damage but can still get about. Also, a declawed cat will have a very high likelihood of become a biter.
1006035 tn?1485579497 I think it would do more harm for an outdoor cat to be declawed as they would need some line of defense. There is supposed to be a new surgical method that is supposed to be less painful for recovery but it is very costly as it is a laser surgery. That being said we have two cats and they both are *not* declawed. However I'm not opposed to getting it done if they were to turn those claws on my children. I'm all for providing a loving, caring home for my pets but they my CHILDREN come first.
Avatar m tn (it was put-me-to-sleep surgery that if not successful would have resulted in full amputation of my finger) BUT i do take vics from 0 - 2 per day. sometimes none. yesterday i took 1/2 all day: 1/4 morning 1/4 afternoon. this am i took 1. i do know that additive/dependent behavior is in my genes. my father is 82 and for as long as i can remember he has had 2 martinis EVERY nite. my grandmother was the same way. my mom was pill dependent/addicted.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn I also crushed my pelvis, fractured my Right shoulder and fractured my Left ring finger. I'm very fortunate to be here today. I have pins and plates in my neck, nothing to T7 and I have been fused 2 above and 2 below L2. As of today, the pain is above and below my rod placement. I am consulting my neurosurgeon and we contemplating the removal of the hardware. He is consulting one of his colleagues. I am very interested in how you do with this procedure.
5093508 tn?1390547531 As you know, denial is a fundamental part of addiction. It's very important, if you want to make progress in your recovery, that you be honest and take accountability for YOUR role in this confusion. I'm not saying this situation is 100% YOUR fault, but I think a good but of it lies with you...both because you were being complacent with disclosure, and also because you were abusing your meds. The two of them go together.
Avatar n tn This a-hole needs an amputation of his own----right below the belly button. take care, hun and pleas keep us posted. Luv, Nauty.........................
Avatar n tn I am 6 weeks post fusion L4 L5 and it is a long and painful road to recovery and everyone has different pain tolerence levels. I find the bone graft site is the most painful and having to sleep flat on my back every night. The pain is like a burning hot knife passing through the hip muscles and it is just horrible. I see my specialist in a couple of weeks and fingers crossed the fusion has taken as I wouldnt want to go through all this again.
Avatar n tn If you can force yourself to go the the gym and work up a sweat, then take a long sauna, go to yoga classes or jog around the block- this will speed up recovery and ultimately help you sleep longer & sounder. Acupuncture is also great-just be honest about what your going through and a good acupuncturist can really help you out. Just keep up the good work- every week will get easier/ after 3 months, you will definitely notice a big improvement physically & psychologically.
384896 tn?1335297931 I have seen both sides of the issue my brother is uncircumcised and has had no preoblems or infection on the other hand my sister-in-law chose not to have it done and cleaned her son very well and he kept getting repeat infections over and over and it caused a lot of issues and he ended up having to have it done at 1 1/2 and it was a much bigger deal and took a lot more surgery time and recovery time.
Avatar n tn The uterus was removed but the ovaries and cervix are in tact. The entire surgery was done laparoscopically and recovery was quick. I was still nursing my baby at the time. A couple of months later, I had to stop nursing my baby due to breast pain. Within a month, I started bleeding. I actually was annoyed (I'd given away all my tampons) but didn't think much about it. The third time it happened, I casually mentioned it to my mother who freaked out. Went to my Gyn.
