Had my third surgery on my left hand today, trigger finger releases. My hand is still numb, but at least no pain yet, till fuzzy-headed and typing with one hand.

So what did I do with my time today, buying straight razors, though I've yet to shave with one. I love my DE and SE razors and had just started with the CJB blade handle. I thought the perfect razor, the Weber, would end my search and curiosity, but no, here I go again.

I will hold off buying more until the side effects of the anesthesia wear off.


No straights will be used until I have two working hands. That's for sure. Probably will just read and not write posts for a couple of weeks, at least.

Wow. I had that happen once, can't imagine it being so bad as to require surgery. Hope for a healthy recovery!

I had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands three years ago, that I'd put off for 13 years. One finger was triggering and causing the a central part of the hand to swell and inflame, as well and I had that released.

I think the other fingers started triggering after those surgeries, due to the surgery, my piano playing,guitar playing, use of the microscope for long hours at work and the computer mouse...overuse. My remaining hand is starting to do the same.

It gets where you can no longer ignore the pain or unlock the trigger that easily or use your hand to do simple things. So, yes, it can get bad. My last surgeon clipped the triggering ligaments on all five fingers at once on a farmer with this problem. I went through several cortisone shots and tapers of prednisone and finally had to be able to sleep without pain.

I wish you a speedy recovery. My wife was a music teacher in public schools for 36 years and right in the middle of a choir concert she was playing for one of her fingers locked up. Weirdest thing I've ever seen. Had it operated on and she has been fine since.

Thank you. I've had no pain and no swelling. A first. Not much sleep. I feel an anesthesia hangover today, but will go outside a bit. And I am typing with both hands.
