    Aenesthesia worked freaking GOOD. I had Dr Perry as my ortho surgeon @ Mammoth, he did an excellent job.

    I'm out for 2005, probably 6 months recovery with PT and all. Possible cartilage damage in the joint. Sutures come out next week.

    5. all 8 screws

    6. wrist

    Phuck dude! Heal up quick! Broke my scaphoid last year and am sporting a little titanium myself. What's up with that hack stitch job though?
