Maybe but I have one good hand right now.
i had my left hand operated yesterday.
officially known as trigger-finger release.
my left middle finger locks up and has/had no gripping power. i can't even unjoin cues with it. not much use working on lathes either.
so my insurance finally approved the surgery.
i had local anaesthesia but i still became naeseus and you know what happens after that.
i was concious when my surgeon was slicing my palm. he made me open and close my left hand. when he did enough cutting, my middle-finger finally folded fully.
the cause fir this injuer? the spider bridge hand style. yup ala efren and archer. my bandage will be taken out this monday. i am in no pain but have slight discomfort.
Hopefully I can still drive to Vegas this thursday.

God bless you Joey. I know how much working with the lathe and playing means to you my friend. I don't know how old you are but I do know the older you are the longer it takes to recover from any kind of surgery. It'll take time but I know you'll be back. Best of luck and I'm impressed with your plans to go to Vegas hasn't changed.

They get free rooms and always find an excuse to go to Vegas.

<blockquote><font class="small">Quote Chris Cass:</font><hr> I don't know how old you are but I do know the older you are the longer it takes to recover from any kind of surgery. <hr /></blockquote>Man, you're not kidding. As you know, I'm old!! I had surgery on my left achilles/heel bone in early December. Still every single step of every single day is very painful. I saw the doctor two days ago and he is at his wit's end. We've done everything right but still it hurts very much. I had the same surgery on the other side a few years ago and it healed as well as can be expected. He's put me back in the cast for another four full weeks, essentially hoping that whatever it is that's causing the pain miraculously heals itself. I'm so sad. Pathetic is more like it.

Good luck with your recuperation Cueless Joey! I wish you all the best.

You are far from old. I will say that I know it'll take some time for you due to the fact. You can sit still.LOL You'll be shooting no matter what. I still wish you luck sweety.

Spetty, you ain't old! Kinda thought I was till one of my rare trips to a pool hall. Some old geezer too old and frail to break a decent rack handed me my a$$ on a sling. Guy was so decrepit he would bank a ball rather than walk around the table. Trouble was give the guy a shot and he ran the table. Without fail!

Sorry to hear your foot has not recovered.

Not sure what a spider bridge is but it sounds dangerous?

You are old when you wake up in the morning and feel no pain because you are dead.
That's old.

I'm sorry to hear this SPetty.
When I first met you, you had the cast on the first foot. You got around pretty well. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I hope you get better soon. I would like to see you, without the cast and running around a table, in a couple of months. /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Yo Louise!!

Why don't we go to another specialist to see what's up with that? You're too young to be hauling around a cast.

Well, if she quit kicking the table when she missed that wouldn't happen. /ccboard/images/graemlins/cool.gif
