So sorry to hear that some of you and your partners have been unwell.  pale  I sincerely hope that you all have a good recovery very soon and look forward to a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

I too have had a problem.  On Christmas day, I had a fall which resulted in a plaster cast being installed yesterday.  I did not attend A&E on the day, although I did the following day.  Unfortunately, Boxing Day still leaves the emergency minimally staffed - although I was grateful for the attention which I received.

An appointment was made for one week later.  Unfortunately, that was yet another Bank Holiday (in-lieu of New Years Day).  As a result, I received a call from the hospital a couple of days before, apologising for the error and moving the appointment to Tuesday 3rd Jan, when I had the plaster cast fitted.

Moving, dressing, cooking, going to the loo etc., is an absolute bugger!  Crying or Very sad

It seems that I have damaged the ulna ligament in my thumb.  Very painful...



oh dear was it an alcohol related accident perchance? blowkiss

ulna ligament in  thumb problems are usually caused by giving the 'thumbs up' inappropriately

Sorry to learn that Irene - I wondered where you had gone.

I had a somewhat similar accident a long time ago with my middle finger. I moved to open a glass door not realising the door was in the process of closing. The impact caused the middle joint to be rent apart so the last two bits of the finger were left more or less dangling.

Took ages to join back together.

Many thanks everyone for your comments and concerns.

davo, I certainly had imbibed one or two champagne cocktails (Champers with a dash of Cointreau), but I don't think it was the cause of my mishap. 

I do occasionally have balance issues - even when I have two feet on the ground! ... 
It was probably caused by vanity!  My daughter-in-law was showing me one of her Xmas gifts (a hair remover gadget without blades).   I was standing and lifted my right foot onto some loose cushions which I had been using as a foot-rest; this is where the vanity comes in - I wanted to know if the gadget would safely remove any growth on the area of my leg which is badly discoloured with poor circulation.  It was at this moment when I began to fall backwards - that is all I remember.  I must have put out my left arm to break my fall. 

I knew immediately that I had damaged my hand in some way and the rest is history.

Sounds very painful, Irene! Hope it doesn't take too long to heal and for the pain to ease. 

Sorry to hear of the others who have been ill and hope too that you'll all be feeling much better.

I know this is small consolation - but you could so easily have got hurt much worse - you clearly had a close shave.... morn
