Ah, yes, well...after a month and a half of wrapping the thumb, and another four weeks of wearing the removable cast that was made for me last time this happened, it is time to see an actual medical professional. *sigh*

To be honest, I don't think the pain is getting any worse, but it really isn't getting any better either. This may, of course, be because I'm not being as diligent as I should about not using my freaking thumb, but apparently I'm going to need to have someone in authority tell me so. I'll be leaving to see my GP in 20 minutes.

Hopefully we will be able to identify and deal with the issue much more quickly this time, since I really need to have my thumb back in time to paddle down the Middle Fork this summer. However, I am mildly concerned that it only took 3.5 years for this issue to reoccur.

If I do have to get a hard cast again, I dread the fact that this time it's happening during the hot season, since last time I did this it was September and even then it was irritatingly hot...

*sigh* I was hoping this was going to get better without you having to go to the GP. Good luck!

I have an appointment with a new orthopedic surgeon on Monday. Hopefully there will be no hard cast, but if there is, I should have enough time to heal.

Crossing my fingers that you'll still be able to cross yours.

You cannot have a cast on the Middle Fork because that would suck. How are you gonna hold the cards to play spades? *grumbles*

THUMB! BE HEALED!!! *magicks it better*
