I passed a copy of my X-rays to the physioterrorist team today, yes that’s right the NHS is also supported by CSC and therefore can’t view between two hospitals!
My original physioterrorist is back and both delighted and amazed at the speed of my recovery and just how well both are doing.
Whilst I was doing my computer work two students got very excitable looking at the adjacent pc so I snuck a look, they were looking at me! We managed to sneak some time after the painful bits to look at the X-rays and try to reconstruct the wrist we saw.
Several pieces of paper and even a model wrist were deployed along with the obligatory feeling health wrists for comparison. Several staff and students joined in and one clear conclusion was reached, you guessed it the same as is always reached “you did a bloody good job” .
They have asked to use my X-rays as training aids and I have, of course, agreed I am hoping that is the last fame the accident will gain me now.
I also now have my new instrument of torture, a delightful cuff and spring arrangement to force my left wrist around to the left and try and help work on the rotation.
Interestingly while the upper body is gaining such high praise my limp has become more pronounced as the knee complains more and more. My determined power walk to the hospital was met with almost outright mutiny when I hit a hill but my guess is this is just attention seeking.
