Yeah, that crazy long thing in the title. I have it. It’s also called “mommy’s thumb”.
During pregnancy both my wrists started hurting and I was told it would go away after I gave birth. It didn’t. The left one hurts rarely. The right one on a regular basis. The best way I can describe it is that is feels like it pops out of place and it’s excruciating pain until it pops back in. My orthopedic surgeon says it’s the swollen tendon/fluid getting stuck in the sheath and that is what is popping/hurting.
I got a shot straight into my tendon with a brace to wear for 6 weeks. If it doesn’t cure then the next option is surgery to cut open the sheath to allow the tendon to move with restriction.
I hate the brace and have a bad habit the last couple of days of taking it off. Jay is having to make me put it on. You would think I would keep it on but taking care of Theodore is really hard with it on.
Sigh. Theodore and I are getting ready for our trip to TN. We fly out on Saturday and return the next Saturday. Jay didn’t have enough days to go with us. 😢
Also, if anyone wants to follow my personal instagram account just let me know! I post way too many pics on there!
