So a couple weeks ago I bust my hand, industrial accident, snap my fifth metacarpal, like so:
So I get surgery, they stick a couple pins in, running the length of the bone, stickin out on either side of the first knuckle.
Surgery and post-op were fine, it’s healing up, the only problem has been that in my weekly outpatient visits, the doctor doing the checking is one of these old school cunts who thinks it’s cool to ignore pain (related to this phenom, one supposes…).
This pigfucker, when they were changing the dressings, grabs on to the finger of the busted bone, and just fuckin YANKS it sideways like it’s his fuckin Johnson or something. The pain was so brutal I puked.
Anyways, my question is, what’s the normal procedure for removing the pins, I imagine there’s likely to be a fair bit of pain, do they generally apply a local, or is it just fuckin Nut Up or Shut Up??
Thanks in advance.
