"Can't believe you played touch rugby and ended up in hospital. You've changed."
Yes I snapped a tendon in my right ring finger playing tag rugby. Rubbish. I had surgery on Monday. They found the tendon at the bottom of finger and were able to re-attach it. It seemed to go well. I have never been under for an op before.
Other than waking up Tuesday morning in considerable pain its been fine. My sister in law has been amazing and others have been very helpful. My hand is now in a ridiculously large protective cast. Big kit for one finger! Have an appointment on Friday. Full recovery likely to take three months.
I'm typing with one hand... planning and accommodating for a different three months to the ones I anticipated.
