"You don't need to be a doctor to see that there is something wrong with your wrist and something needs to be done about it" - my doctor today.
Today was the 6th time I have been to the doctor to have them take a look at my hand. Last time they sent me to take a MR scan, and I never heard back from them like they said I would, so yesterday I called. The lady on the phone said they found NOTHING on the scan, but if it still hurt, I could get an appointment today. Of course I said yes and went to talk to my doctor. He said they had in fact found SOMETHING, and read the exact same thing to me from the xray-people as the lady on the phone did, except the last sentence, that said they had found cysts (?) in my wrist.
After a short conversation with my doctor, he found the one giving me the most problems, and decided to look into having it removed. So, sometime after christmas, I might have to go into a small surgery to have them removed, at least the one giving me the most problems.
I'm just so frustrated and happy at the same time. It took over 8 months and 6 visits to different doctors (my doctor 2 times, the 4 others was because my doctor had time of work for ages) to get some sort of answer. I have not been able to draw, use a computer mouse, open f**king doors or wash my goddamn hair without it hurting or giving me discomfort since my EASTER HOLIDAY.
Atleast it wasn't my bones or tendons, and it can be fixed by a small surgery with a short recovery time (I think, I know people who have done this with their knees). It will be in January at the earliest, and in worse case that the wrist expert that decides if I get the surgery, says no. I will need some recovery time after of course, and I need to start slow, but at least now I know what is going on.
Sorry if the grammar and stuff is all over the place.. I'm kind of drowning in "feels" and can't focus on fix it now. I AM happy, but I'm also very very frustrated over the whole thing.
