Extra...extra...read all about it!!!

YEA!!!  No wrist surgery for this old gal!!!!  Dr. said that having the injection so close to surgery (has to do with cortisone/immune system) as well as I have had SO much relief with the injection from two weeks ago that I can hold off!!!!
I am SO happy...I wasn't looking forward to the surgery and I am a firm believer that you need to have confidence in your operation/surgeon/decision to just have surgery.  I have been  leery of the surgery...not so much my surgeon (he has done over 3,000 of these surgeries) but for some reason not comfortable.  Some of it had to do with the fact I have been almost pain free the past week!  I had a little setback stitching a few weeks ago but I am now using my splint/wrap when sewing and cleaning.  Dr. said if the shot is working then we should hold off.  I'm to call if/when the swelling and pain returns...otherwise, it's playtime for this old gal!!!  WOOHOO!  Time to celebrate tonight...Mexican, of course, and Margarita's!

That is GREAT news! I had good results with my toe surgery, but there are now other issues..not painful but issues none the less. Great if you can avoid the knife!! Carry on and DO celebrate!!
