Removing both fingernails, repairing nail beds. Operation could as late as this evening.
No pain meds, after broken ribs this is a breeze.......so far.

Trying to get op moved forward, swelling has nearly pushed the nail off overnight.

Local anesthetic (that hurts) two nails gone, plaster setting, good to go.

As an aside.. It won't help you Tom.. Yet, it's a mutual muse.
I busted my ring-finger skateboarding: Wedding Ring Z plus 2.

Specially made for me (& thus my wife): Didn't last: Sorry: Fail.
Edit: I've still got the/my ring: It's that/our Marriage didn't last.

I'm not-yet jaded towards women: Although I very easily-maybe.
Whatever sorta-cuddle you've got going on: Methinks that stays.
================================================

I live alone... I snapped my Collar Bone on a MTB... Ironic given 20 years moto.
The surgeon put nails; of which I'm grateful & the anesthetist; since I woke up.

It's a difficult challenge managing yourself without help... Need necessitates a growth in means.
Would I choose to cop that pain & suffering... No, I'm not an idiot... Yet, I know I can/will cope.
================================================== ====================

Yeah: I'm replete with fungus:
That once concerned my wife.

My Dog, Cobber, is this Man's Best Friend.

Thankfully they left my thumb free, may have to free my index finger as well, managed boiled eggs for breakfast and made sandwiches for lunch, don't think I'm going to be very effective at work though.

Feelings just coming back in fingers now, not very sore.

Bloody hell Tom. You pick the most painful ways to hurt yourself.

I injured my left Great Toe and had to have the nail removed recently. The local anaesthetic injections were bloody painful. I was relieved once the nail was off though.

Good luck with it, hope you don't bump them too many times.

had the bar end crush my thumb against a rock 18 months ago. they removed the nail, cleaned the bone (open fracture), stitched up both sides of thumb, then put the nail back on and bandaged it up. nail stayed on. still have a funny feeling and numbness in my thumb.

Similar surgery it seems.

First time I've seen my fingers in a week, they put the nails back on after repairing the nail bed. They told me they were taking them off, they put them back on to keep the opening for the new nail.
Bloody knuckles were nearly seized.



Five weeks in splints for the broken bones
.







Bloody Hell Tig welding and my splints started to melt.

Dropped in to local bulk biller to have 2nd dressing change. They said they're healing well.

Fingers are actually pretty good, only wearing splints when working, can bend them almost full range, hardest part is keeping them dry.
