Finger tip hurts after glass removal Surgery. NEWBY

Postby muku » Wed Mar 25, 2009 4:54 am

Hello,
Here's a weird yet painful one.
My finger had a small wedge removed with surgery 2 months ago. I do not know if the Dr. got the very small shard of clear glass out or not. I asked him and he claimed that he found a little dark spot in the flesh he removed. It is on the side of my index finger luckily not on center but off to the right side. I read a 2007 post about liquid bandaids and superglue which I will try tomorrow.But i was wondering if anyone has ever heard of a tougher covering? I hear the Tommi Inmoi(?) has some prostetic fingertip.

Unfortunatley my right wrist just got diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel. 40 plus years of guitar playing and everything else.

THANKS

It's going to be a long,slow healing process. Think about taking up slide.

thanks for the replies. I just put on Nu Skin we'll see if it can hang. You're right I played a side 30 years ago and I need to try it out again and get that sweet swell of sounds. Mike

I just nicked the very tip of my index finger while using a table saw about 2 months ago and have just now recovered to the point where I can press down on a guitar string without too much of a sting. I figure it's a small price to pay considering I could have lopped off the whole enchilada :shock:

I don't get scared of much, but finger injuries frighten 7 shades of.. out of me.
