It was back in mid-July when I was bit by a spider on my finger. I’ve been back to the doctor twice for it. Once he gave me more antibiotics to take but the second time, he wanted me to see an orthopedic/hand bone specialist. He thinks there’s now a bone spur on the knuckle which he said can be caused by trauma . . your body sends whatever it thinks is needed after trauma and he thinks my body dumped calcium in the area of the spider bite and that caused a bone spur. And . . that’s what I remember he said but may not be exactly what he said.
I didn’t go to the orthopedic/hand bone doctor here because he’s already done surgery on this finger once and while I didn’t dislike him, I’m not sure he’s the one I’d go to again. I kept hoping this finger would get better, but it isn’t.
It’s the bad finger . . and it’s so sore. If I bump it on anything, it’s excruciating but just briefly. See how white that nail is? I think I may lose it and I’m kinda hoping as it grows out more and maybe comes off, that will relieve pressure and help with the pain.
But . . what do I know?
