April 3, 2018: Stressful

It’s been 2 weeks since I got the cortisone shot in my wrist to treat my tendinitis. The pain subsided for a few days, yet over the weekend it began to return. After a long workday of physical labor, my hand is back to feeling as uncomfortable as it did before I got the injection. So it appears that I need to seriously consider wrist surgery. And the thought of having surgery done is scary. I mean, I know that I need relief from pain, but I don’t know how long I’ll be without my left hand. There’s just so much uncertainty. I only know that I need my hand to feel better.
