I shed a tear for my tear.....

I have not been on 365 for a while because I have been having terrible wrist pain for the past couple of months which has gotten so bad that I have been unable to use my right hand. I have been off of work trying to rest my wrist and got a recent MRI which showed bad news: a badly torn scapholunate ligament. I have been in the splint and have not used my wrist at all for about 10 days but to no avail. I am currently exploring my options but things are not looking good. I am very sad to say that I will be out of 365 for a while. I have voice recognition software that I am learning and intend to continue following my friends. My first priority is to figure out a way to continue to work using only my left hand and to explore my options on how to fix this problem.
How awful! I am so sorry - feel better soon! I'll keep you in my thoughts. I will miss seeing your shots.

Cute title with the homographs. So sorry to hear about the problems. I will miss your wonderful pics.

ouch, hope you heal up. And why are DSLRs designed for right handed people when everyone knows that a lot of creative people are lefties?

I'm so sorry to hear this Gark. I'm a lawyer and I do insurance/ employee benefit related work. If you run into problems on those issues and just want someone to bounce ideas off of free of charge, let me know. I'm sorry this has been such an ordeal. Hugs and prayers for recovery.....

Gark...well that just sucks. Best wishes on a speedy resolution and recovery... I'll miss your pictures and comments... And like Marzenka said - we'll be here when you get back. Take care.

I know how it feels with the wrist thing. I've got RSI in my right thumb from too much camera work and mouse work and as my job is to sort other people's RSI out I'm feeling a bit ridiculous having it myself! Have a search for a John Barnes trained Myofascial Release Therapist in your locale, they might be able to help.

Get well, soon, Gark! We'll all certainly miss your terrific images while you're gone but look forward to seeing you back on here. Hopefully, it won't take long for you to be able to get back to work and back to photography.

Hey Gark - Thanks for getting us up to day. That's really lousy news. I'll echo Mike and wish you the best of luck - we need our leader!

mi dispiace tanto ... le tue foto bellissime mancheranno ... tanti auguri per una pronta guarigione

I am so bummed to hear this news Gark...I have had 4 surgeries on my hands and it is not that bad..but your's i have never herd of....One time a hand specialist told me she would have to remove a ligament and replace it with another ligament from the other wrist! Thank God i did not do that ! It was pretty risky! Have you tried therapy already? Im sure you have tried everything but I totally believe in the mirical of cranial sacral therapy and myofacial realease...not if there is a tear you do not want to do the myofacial realease but maybe begin with the other..and see if there is any change...We will all be looking foward to you to return as soon as possible..you are already missed!

That is not good news I have returned to! I was hoping for a different result ! What ever I can do let me know, same for Ann. I like Ellen's advice.

That looks so painful! So sorry to hear this, Gark! I hope you find answers and relief soon!
