aye man, she works with a few gaa clubs
Hey Sgt hang on in there! Want a cake making? (That is a serious offer btw)
Chin up Sarge, dont rip the other arm off gorilla style with all the porn!
had surgery on my wrists yesterday. Flew to Liverpool in the morning, had the surgery at 2:00, discharged myself at 9:30, stayed in a hotel with the mrs last night, flew home today.
back home, with bad news + worse news...
Werent able to fix my wrists, as the op required was too big.
Have to go in for 2 more ops, one for each hand. Have ruptured a ligament in each hand, so full surgery required, including possible ligament grafts from my forearms, and a full immobilty cast for 4-6 weeks each, and 3 months of physio afterwards for each wrist... Surgeon has refused to do them both at the same time.
Hands are heavily bandaged now, and stiff + sore, but nothing compared to whats coming. Hope to be back at work on monday, at least partially, as I'll be off for a lot soon. Have to see the surgeon again next Sunday to arrange when the ops will be.
Sorry to hear that Sarge, definitely sucks. When do they plan to start the first one?
Hope things start looking up...
Keep your head up. I wish you a speedy recovery.
no idea at the minute when the 1st op is. will know more when i meet the surgeon again next sunday.
Sarge keep your chins up mate we are rooting for you ..
Guss you didn't feel like socialising but next time you're in Liverpool...........
Chin up mate, hang in there.
You know where I am if you need a rant mate.
Also I think smurfy just implied that you're larger than average.
Bad luck mate - that sounds very nasty. Both what is wrong AND how they plan to fix it.
It was good meeting up with you on Tuesday, even for a short time - so fingers crossed that you're fit and healthy the next time I run into you
Smart ass answer to any situation is.."Even this shall pass." Hang in there sarge. I started martial arts after breaking both arms in an accident. Still training fifty years later.
was good meeting you jang bong, including the free lunch! Thanks again for that, I got our developers kicked into touch and expecting patches next week.
That sucks Sarge. Feel free to rant when you next catch me on MSN.
Best to you,Sarge.What an ordeal.
man that sucks, years ago i had wrist surgery after glass went through my tendons and nerve, very painful!!
Never spoke to you much on here, but hope you get better man.
Going back for hand surgery in 2 weeks. (oct 1st)
With all the orthopedic troubles you have you should donate your skeleton to science. No one would even think to disbelieve in the bionic man after seeing it.
