As mentioned, I called the orthopedic yesterday. I'm getting really frustrated with this, as it has been four damn months already, and the pain has just gotten worse - so when they told me I could get an appointment the 14th of November, I felt like crying.
But the secretary I talked to told me she would ask the doctor what I should do, and then I could call her back.
They came to the conclusion that I could come in right away, and I could get a cast on!
I will have to wear it for 10 days only, and then the inflammation should be gone, hopefully.
Only thing about this is, that it goes all the way out to my fingertips, haha. It makes me so handicapped; I can't button my shirts; can't tie my shoelaces; can't put my hair in a ponytail; can't open jars; etc.. but I'll manage!
Tonight I didn't sleep too much, because I woke up and suddenly felt claustrophobic and panicked. I was convinced my fingers would fall off, and I imagined my hands filled with stinging red blisters.
Well, I have to get used to this for sure!
