In the morning I went to see a specialist about the thrombosis. She was a lovely and helpful lady who explained the illness from the very beginning to me and set the course of treatment. Sadly, there are still many “we don’t really know’s” with things like this, so I don’t even have an estimate when my hand will stop hurting and when the thrombosis will be gone. Could be a week for the former, could be a month. It all depends on my body they said.

I was taken off birth control and told not to lift heavy things or to exercise. Not sure yet how it will affect my job, but we’ll see. Right now, I am taking a couple of days off to see if the pain lessens. It’s not that bad, the swelling has gone down and my hand is mostly functional, but weak and I can’t make certain movements with it yet.
