How Bad Can Tendonitis Get?

Real Estate Agent with Elizabeth Anne Weintraub, Broker DRE #00697006

You may have noticed I have not written for a while. Maybe not. However, I am proof that tendonitis can be so bad I can't type or write or do anything, really, with my right arm and hand. Good thing I am not a guy, LOL, if you get my drift.  I have to type only with my left hand. My friend Linda (in the collage) broke her arm in a nasty accident; we are a sorry pair.

My physical therapist says it will take at least a month to fix. So this is all you get. I will be back.

Get better soon! It's terrible when our bodies get in the way and stop us from doing what we want to do.

I had noticed, Elizabeth, and had planned to send you a note today to see if all was well with you. Sorry to hear about the tendonitis... not something I've experienced, but I have arthritis in both thumbs and there are days I can barely type or hold a pen... so I get it. Hope you feel better soon.

Sorry to hear this, Elizabeth. Tendonitis is one affliction that has passed me by--so far, at least. Hope you recover more speedily than predicted. I wonder if acupuncture/acupressure could help?

I also missed you and wondered what was going on - meant to shoot you and email. I so sorry, I"m sure it's not a lot of fun to have tendinitis. At least you're drinking beautiful beverages - mimosa?  Wishing you speedy healing, Elizabeth.  D

Hi Elizabeth- I too had noticed and thought you might be en route to Hawaii or back to CA. I have no idea what's in that drink but it looks yummy!!!

Tendonitis can get really bad.  I have never had it, but have seen folks brought to tears who did.  That drink looks like the perfect cure all.

Aloha Elizabeth: as long as your tendonitis doesn't stop you from getting a firm grasp around those Mai Tai glasses.

Well, I have to say after fighting with my insurance company, BlueShield, which refuses to pay for my therapy because the physical therapy place does "not offer emergency services," even though it was an emergency that I go there because I am in Hawaii and unable to see a physician at UC Davis, LOL, I have decided to bite the bullet and change my medical coverage.

The tendonitis is somewhat better but I had an MRI and an Xray at UC Davis in July and turns out my wrist is not factured as they said after the Xray results. It is arthritis. So I had to use my other hand while I wore a brace on my right hand for 3 months (which did nothing, btw), and in overworking it, I pulled something in my thumb so almost every time I pick up a glass or an object with my left hand, I drop it.

No, no don't drop the Mai Tai!

I hope you heal quickly.  A few years ago, my wife needed surgery to fix a similar issue.
