A Big Thumbs Up.......

...... to all the staff in the Plastic Department of North Durham University Hospital for saving my thumb and thus allowing me to enjoy my hobby again and thus continue with my dream job!

My thumb has healed extremely well, the stitches melted away without any problem, the incision is very clean and all I have to worry about now is to remember to apply some moisturiser every now and again to stop the dry skin around the wound from flaking and getting very itchy!!

A job well done IMHO.


Sorry for the crap quality of the pic, it was taken at 5:30 this morning and I was a bit groggy and half asleep.

  4. Guys,

    Thanks for the kind words, it's been a heck of a relief to find out that my thumb has full movement and at the end of the day has suffered no damage at all. I'm one lucky chap!

    @Jim, Depends what with ;P

  8. Ouch. You seem to be having a rough time of it at present. Sorry not to have caught up again at Salute this year. Perhaps they can use the photo of your thumb on model knife packaging, like the photos on fag packets!

      LOL.

      Maybe they should. Miniatures are very bad for your fingers....

      :O)
