desertbluesman Posted November 7, 2018 Share Posted November 7, 2018 So I got the stitches out a week ago Monday. So I waited almost a week after the stiches removal then on Sunday past I decided to take on the bicycle tire replacement on both of our bicycles. By the time I was done, I had done something to my wrist that was excruciatingly painful. I had such sharp pains in my right arm at the end of that job I could hardly use my right hand for anything for the rest of that day. Luckily I got through to my surgeons physicians assistant and got an 11:00 AM appointment Monday past (This is 3 weeks since the surgery day) Anyways I go in to see him and he looks over everything, and says he could not redo the Cortisone/lydicaine shot they did 3 weeks ago. But he assures me that I did no permanent damage to the surgery area itself. He sent me home with a script for prednisolone a steroid. I took it easy the rest of the day and started the prednisolone regimen Tuesday morning and lo and behold within hours all the pain was gone, and I could use my hand again for mild tasks. Fast foreword to today I resumed my guitar practice in full with no ill effects. I have an appointment with the surgeon on the 20th to see if he will redo the shot (The PA told me he could at that time) and I think the tire replacement actually did something good and redistributed the Cortisone/lydicaine enough to actually make my wrist feel better than before the tire replacement fiasco.
