Some things I can do left handed but many things I can't. Quite a lot of things need both hands.
I can sew machine zigzag okay cause there is no precision needed and I cut the towel up earlier last week. I am making baby wipes.
When I came home after surgery last Wednesday this is how I looked.
I had an ugly fast growing growth ( possibly squamous cell carcinoma ) ( result not back from path lab yet ) on my
right arm just above where the wrist bends. It grew in size while I kept getting referred to someone else then someone else......
If you are squeamish stop reading / looking right now.
Today I have been back to have it redressed and it's doing well.
To make sure it was all removed a cm all round of clear skin had to be taken away.
A full depth graft was taken from under my upper right arm....very good stretchy skin........ first use I have had for that sagging flesh!
When the nurse had it exposed she was taking a photo of its progress so I asked to take one with my phone.
This is what it looks like.
An insect with too many legs?
My upper arm just has a thin plaster across the stitches now and it has a lovely bruise running from the bottom of it. Stitches still in.
I asked today if it was alright to type and write for a short while - yes. When the sling gets too sweaty ( most of the time ) rest your arm against your upper body if sitting down. and at night put a pillow under it.
Definitely don't get it wet, don't chop or twist your wrist or lift anything heavier than a cup. Don't go near the orchard or garden !
It will all take a while to heal and be very vulnerable to bumps so stay away from crowds.
I will try and obey orders and be a good patient....I don't want the graft to fail or have to be redone.
