Good luck fella, had mine done about 6 years ago. You'll be down and back in your room before you know it.

had it done when i was 11, but had a slight case of tonsilitis when i went in they were not going to do it then changed their mind, ended up with a terrible infection. I have broke loads of bones split my head a good few times but that was the sorest thing ive ever had done . . other than a hard boot in the baws

I knew doctors were sadists, but that's a bit much after getting your tonsils out!

Good luck....

I'm getting my hand pinned/wired at 4 today after breaking it last week :(

I'm bored already and might have another 14 weeks off work :(

Fifth metacarpal?

Broke mine with severe angulation a long time ago.

I had the pins hanging out of my hand for five weeks, you get used to catching them on things and they can rotate a little bit and you can twiddle them round a bit.

The first I realised I wasn't getting any drugs was when the doctor started opening an autoclave bag containing some pliers. Oh yes, they take them out without giving you any medication.

I have the 2.5" long pins in a jar. Next to my drill-bit-in-a-jar which was removed by the same department several years later (I didn't let them take that out without sedation, they wanted to!).

Hopefully you will get morphine, tell them you are in lots of pain when you wake up. Dull ache with sharp pains, that will get you some of the good stuff, Tramadol is lies!!

Had my tonsils done a few years back and in the the pre op room the doc started spooning huge amounts of white powder up my nose. When I complained he said folk pay shed loads of money for that as it's pure cocaine, which we use to stop you bleeding to much. Was high as a kite for a while after that and did'nt give a f*** about the pain.

The Monklands!

I'm sure I won't need to tell you to check to see if they've removed your ovaries, a kidney or maybe even an entire limb after the op. :)

I did my fourth and fifth a few years back. The fourth was just a crack but when I tried to make a fist my little finger was pointing across my hand because of the rotation of the bone. When I finally got it pinned (about a month after it happened - long story lol) my hand got badly infected. The hospital told me this was nothing to do with their operation that left the prongs sticking out of hand - lol. One doctor even told me it was arthritis LMFAO. All of my fingernails fell out. After a good few courses of antibiotics and about 4 months later they eventually grew back.

Anyway, last year I popped the fifth (on my left hand this time), about 5 days before I was going on holiday, So I pulled it straight and fixed it with a home made splint. I think its healed better than the one they operated on.

As for the plier treatment, that wasnt nice at all. Mine were stuck in tight, I couldnt spin them like yours. I had 1 doctor swinging off my elbow and the other off the pliers .. lol
