My pin retention system has been working well, even making the nurse laugh. Then,as is the nature of such things, the good idea showed its flaw!
I lifted my arm to rub my head and the cast smacked against my head, as it often does, only thing is that ‘first contact’ was the pin which got punched back into the wrist. The effect was instantaneous resulting in a scream and the loss of all movement in my fingers, over the following 20 minutes I’ve recovered the movement and as a bonus the pin is about 10mm deeper! Sure it will all work out in the end.
Just had toxicology results on the leg and its infected/suspect MRSA so more silver and pills but at least we know and I can’t catch it twice so happier going to hospital tomorrow now.
