    My Operataion Tomorrow

    wow that was quick got a phone call this morning from the hospital there was an opening and I have to be there 8:30 in the Morning Wednesday the 6th of July. Ive been needing this sugary for around 10 or 11 years now but not until late last year when things started to go down hill for me in the sense of pain in my arm and losing feeling in 2 of my fingers this came quiet unexpected due to there been an opening so I am in have to see the anesthetist today in his office I was not going to see him until just before the operation but then I told the lady on the phone something about me fasting and she had to ring up the anesthetist due my other medical conditions. Anyway why am I telling you this for. Because Nikkie will most probable be out of action for a little while but getting my operation is important.

    I would like to say thank you to every body here that has helped me along my way today I had only just start to get a few things sink in like ISO and fstops now I just need to start to understand shutter speed and put them altogether. I will get there just takes longer for things to sink in but anyway Just wanted to say a big thank you and let you know how much I do really appreciate all your help and your friendship this is not goodbye just a see ya later when Im feeling up to it again. I have a trapped ulnar nerve now for more then 10 years but now its getting done


    I hope Ive put this in the right place if not a mod will move it I am sure.

    Sandy,

    Good luck and take care.

    While your convalescing, you might want to send a slave to the book-store (or amazon - or if you have iPad, kindle or kobo etc.) to get Bryan Peterson's 'Understanding Exposure' and /or 'Understanding Shutter Speed'.

    A good read or these will help you get your head around the concepts.

    Take care.

    Nikkie - I had a left arm Ulnar Nerve Lesion in the early 1970s... Back in those days, the "procedures" were a bit less strealined than they are today.

    My symptoms were a growing numbness in the left side - small and next finger, of the hand, and along the forearm underside. Eventually, the affected fingers curled-up and refused to open properly.

    While my admission was to Sydney General Hospital, they didn't have an adequate operating microscope for the job, at the time. So I was transported to Sydney Eye Hospital, then in Sir John Young Crescent, which had a new and then apparently expensively rare, such device, for the actual op.

    Then, back to Sydney Hospital for post-op care. In those days, that meant several days in bed, then, after release, returns for exercise therapy for some weeks.

    These days, the whole thing has been vastly improved, with far less time and hassles involved. However - even that "early days of it" procedure was 100% successful, and even now at 62, that arm and hand are amongst my better-functioning parts!

    I'm sure that with today's much more modern methods, you'll be back in "Full Photographer mode" - very shortly!

    - For something to read while the Repairs settle down - a relly or friend might get you Bryan Peterson's "Understanding Exposure" - an excellent reference to the "ISO, F-stops and Shutter Speed" things you mentioned.

    Note that there's now a new version out, fully revised for the digital era...

    Will be thinking of you....

    Best Regards, Dave.

    wow you lot are wonderful people not only with the help and advice you all have given to me with my photography but with caring about me and I am sure with all its people like you that make this world a much better place I have been happy here and its because of people like you I will be back shooting away soon. Dave thank you for sharing your story with me yes things have come along way over the years that is for sure I do have other medical conditions that might make my recovery a little more slower as well as been allergic to all the good pain meds there are but what I will be going though tomorrow I will give you a thought for sure as you had it so much harder back then than I will tomorrow. I wish you all good days for your photography and when I get back online and drop in ill go back and have a look to see what you guys have been doing. Can hardly wait to pick up my camera again and start shooting again I wont push myself tho but I will have very itchy feet for it all again. hugs and MWAH!

    There's an expression "it goes without saying." I've found things that go without saying, generally should by said!
    SO, all the best and have a speedy recovery.
    Thank you for bringing your enthusiasm to AP.

    I just had similar surgery, but it was my lower back where a protruding disk was pressing the nerve running down my right leg.
    All done with key-hole surgery, and I was up and about the next day, and went back to work 3 days after surgery.

    Amazing what they can do these days.

    All the best!
