Finger amputation recovery time

Common Questions and Answers about Finger amputation recovery time


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 Just wanted to update my original post about my finger surgery. For about a month after I had my cast off, and after the pins were removed, I had a flexor tendon adhesion. However, I worked every day, at least 10 min every couple of hours, trying to get that darn tendon adhesion to release. Well...finally, after so much work, I finally got that tendon to release. It was a very very bizarre feeling...

636190 tn?1222791368 They also told us after her hospital stay, she is on a LONG road to recovery. I kept trying to ask how long and they kept stating 'a long time' and each person is different. I wished I had more information to share about the disease, but I'm currently trying to research myself since this is such an extreme case. Thanks to all for your posts!
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.
579258 tn?1250652943 to taking 15-18 pills a day (depending on pain) ... and I am looking forward to a time when it will start decreasing. My daughter and grandchildren are coming tomorrow and spending the weekend so between being tired due to the drain on my health and the medicines, and their visit, I will probably not be online until Monday.
1006035 tn?1485579497 It is a painful surgery, with a painful recovery period. And remember that during the time of recuperation from the surgery your cat would still have to use its feet to walk, jump, and scratch in its litter box regardless of the pain it is experiencing. Wheelchairs and bedpans are not an option for a cat. No cat lover would doubt that cats--whose senses are much keener than ours--suffer pain. They may, however, hide it better.
Avatar m tn that is outstanding I truly believe that you guys will make it to recovery......... I relapsed three times once a buddy came over just like I said above the second time was I stopped by 7-11 to buy a coffee and I heard someone call out my was on old user buddy..... he walked out to the car with me and asked me for a ride I told him ok.....
Avatar n tn It is honest. I hate to think that this post will mark a moment in time; a moment in time that will exist indeterminately while my lovely kitty won't. My heart is broken, for Reverie, and for every person who has or will have to endure this painful kind of experience. (Feel free to re-post this anywhere and everywhere you desire). I love you, Reverie. Forever and always. Love, kiira.
Avatar n tn My daughter was involved in a car accident in Jan 05, she was 15 years old at the time, she had her L4, L5 fused, and was told she would be fine after she healed. However she has been experiencing back pain, and her legs will not go straight out when in a sitting position, the doctor says that her hamstrings are tight, and she needs to stretch them out.
5093508 tn?1390547531 I just thought she must think that the 2 a day my GP is prescribing, wasn't enough, in the state I was in at the time of my first visit, supposedly to sort out my meds and I'd even told her I wanted to wean off valium. I never did understand why she gave me a script for it, then 2 weeks later I got a script from my GP, who I thought, knew about all this. What is going on? They are messing with my brain.
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.
Avatar n tn I had the surgery and the recovery was very long and hard. I was 19 at the time. I am 22 now and live in constant pain. After everything with my accident I had been on pain killers so long that I have at this point discontinued them. I feel that they are too easy to become dependant upon and that I cannot function as well mentally with the narcotic fog over me. That said I'm on flexoral and naproxin for inflammation and muscle relaxation.
Avatar n tn He told me it was for neck pain he was having. At the time, he was co-signed on an apartment I had, and I was having a hard time paying the rent by myself, so I felt obligated to help him out in return. Whenever we'd get together, he'd always pressure me to take some too, but for almost a year I refused. I have lupus, so I have some joint pain issues. During a weak moment while I was having a flare-up, I finally consented to take some.
Avatar n tn It stopped so I didn't think much more about it until it started back 3 days ago. Last time it lasted only an hour or so, this time has been three days. The gynecolotist cannot see me until July 28, so I don't know whether to worry or not, but I am. I wish someone, somewhere would have posted whatever they found out after these episodes. I will for sure come back even if they say they have no clue. I don't get it, how can the doctors not be able to tell what is causing it.
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 f tn We love primitive camping, the beaches, and any outdoor activities that we could include our babies in. We are having the hardest time letting go, but I pray that we will know when to stop. She is drinking water, eating some of the chicken; so as long as she is willing, wagging her tail, able to go outside and enjoy, we will continue the fight. My family and friends are supportive, but now they want us to let go. How can I make that decision as long as she is fighting?
Avatar f tn I am athletic (tho no known neck/back problems), and have also spent a lot of time outside and in the sun. I now live in Austin, Texas, also a sunny climate (but more humid than Colorado), and the dreaded itch came back about a month ago. I can not bear the thought of living with this for the rest of my life. Also, no rash or any other visible sign of itch, aside from the scars I create by scratching until bleeding.
