Ow
Bad Day from faula

I had two warts frozen today. One on a fingertip on my right hand and one at the bottom of the little finger on my left. The blisters are huge. I mean, I can't bend the finger on my left hand, or the finger directly next to it. I've seen countries smaller than this blister. I'm not kidding.

The human body is an amzing thing. I've had a huge-arse wart burnt off from the same place as the one on my left hand, and I had forgotten what it was like. If I had remembered this there's no way I would have done this. No, I would have, but I wouldn't have done it to both hands at the same time.

The doctor's in Roxby are...well, the nicest thing to say is that there are doctors in town. Whether you'd trust them with a cold is entirely up to you. For something as simple as wart removal I went to the next nearest doctor an hour away. I'd gone to the Roxby docs about 3 months ago to attempt wart removal, but the doctor couldn't do it. He didn't want to 'touch my lesions since there was no pain.' It took me 15 mintues that day of going "No. Not Lesions. Warts. Everyday, common variety warts. I know they're aren't painful, but they irritate me when I try to use a pen, or open twist top lids." Another friend went for a check-up at 8 months pregnant and she had to tell the Roxby doc how to take a foetal heart-beat as he did not know how. That's something you don't want to hear.

But anyway, I had forgotten how much the freezing hurts. yes, I am a wimp. But because I forgot, I had to drive an hour home with hands that couldn't properly hold the steering wheel. Ever tired to pass a 3-carriage road train with only half a hand holding the wheel? It's a special feeling. I felt like there should be caption somewhere near me "Don't try this at home kids."

I hope your hands feel better soon! I never had warts frozen, only cut out off my feet. I was left with the impression that getting them frozen would have been better, but your entry certainly doesn't sound like that...

Freezing is easier, it's just where the warts are that makes it hard. (Right near the 'bendy' parts of my fingers.)The recovery time involved with getting them frozen is really quick; I should be completely fixed up in less than a week.

And, of course, I am a wuss.
