I googled Ultrafark and found this on Urban Dictionary. I don't profess to know what it means, but, apparently, the author mysteriously died before finishing his post.

Dumski: Speaking of mysteries ..last Friday I was lifting a washing machine into my truck with dear wifey. What was that tearing sound I heard coming from my elbow accompanied by extreme pain?
"Nothing" I say, ice and Tylenol helped. Fast forward to today, and after deep introspection I decided to get my doc to check it. Turns out this former ER nurse dismissed the possibility of a torn bicep tendon.
"Why yes, yes it is" says doc, "let me go find an orthopaedic surgeon".
Egads, I've never had an operation before in my life, but tomorrow it will happen.
Turns out this injury is very rare at the elbow join, and usually the domain of body builders and men around fifty.
If I don't get it fixed I will lose 40% of arm function, and its my dominant arm!
Strange how much your arm function is totally dependant on your

If you're excited to see what will happen to me you can find the repair on YouTube "distal bicep tendon repair"
Bye for now.....


Good luck with your surgery. You might want to ask your doctor about getting one of those bionic grips. Never hurts to ask.
I'd get one, but I don't think my health plan covers it.

Somebody did a dumski thing and gifted me for a month of TF, even though I said I have so little time to 'shop.
I very much appreciate the gesture and will try to get a few in edgwise, whatever that means.
I have a vacation coming up. Perhaps I'll take my computer with me and kick out a few extra.
Ohh... the pressure....

By the way, Dumski, hope the arm gets straightened out... well.. not exactly straightened... you know... fixed... so it works  like it's 'sposed to.

It means that it's on the acceptable side of borderline. It's always possible that someone else may think differently, but I tend to be pretty conservative about what is SFW and what isn't, so it hasn't really been a problem.

Dumski: Good luck with the arm surgery! One of my co-workers tore her biceps tendon just a couple of months ago, but her injury was higher up than yours. Her arm was black and blue for a loooong time. :/

I had arm surgery once. I asked the doctor if I'd be able to photoshop when he was done. He said, "Sure".

I said, "That's great! I never could before!"

I doubt it. Schmugby Schmock is usually pretty laid back about stuff like that, plus I don't recall him ever submitting his own photo. That's kind of like asking to be dragged naked backwards through a briar patch. But then he might have enjoyed that....

Out of the contests for awhile. Experienced new levels of excruciating, seventh circle of hell pain after my bicep tendon re-attached yesterday. Typing and shooping using with my left hand is very dispiriting....and too damned difficult.

Sit back, crack a can or pill bottle, and let me tell you a bedtime story.

Pro tip for your next orthopaedic-type operation:
Never trust a young, beefy fit ortho surgeon who prescribes the "latest and greatest" analgesic for post op pain. If I had been on my game I would have asked for detailed info about my prescription. Had morphine IV in PAR (yuk) and then Percocet (yummy). Left for home (1 hr away) and got there while Percocet was wearing off.
No problem. New pills in. No reaction. New, increased pain. Wifey gives me bottle. Patient looks.....synthetic,codeine-like pill "similar to" Tylenol #3.
Patient gets angry and increasingly distressed, as he takes T3 4 tabs a day for several years.
Wifey can't bear patients moaning and anger, and off to local hospital (20 min away). Patient is swearing and cursing all the way to hospital at 2am. Patient is giving a diatribe about doctors and medications. Makes teeth gritted observation that beefy fit ortho doc probably tells his peers that he has great success without those pesky narcotics.

Got to quiet (thankfully) ER and triaged by a dopey nurse who proclaims that the drug is supposed to work well. "Have you used it?", angry, frustrated, miserable former ER nurse says to dopey. "No, but you haven't given it a chance, and your arm is swollen too. You need to elevate it", despite implicit instruction not to. Patient points out his very high blood pressure. "Thats from pain", she says. Really? Patient states that he used to work here, hoping for some empathy. Dopey continues writing.
Wifey can feel the steam off the patients body. She is worried

Into ER dept. Patient is hoping for a sympathetic doctor, as he knows most of the town docs from working with them for several years.
Bonus! my own family doc (who urgently referred me for my surgery) walks in with very concerned look on his face. I ask him about the new drug. "Useless", he says, for recent post-op pain. Sets me up with Percocet. "Happy to do it", he says. I'm in and out in 30 min (not counting dopey's time). Patient tells family doc he is going have words with young, beefy fit surgeon when he sees him again. Family doc says it won't work to change beefy fit ortho surgeon. "Set in his ways, and all that". "In his 30's???", patient says. Christ.
Patient satisfied but still pissed at beefy fit.
Get home freshly narcotized. "Don't touch my dressing", beef fit had told patient. Patient loosens extremely tight tensor bandage with relief. Patient wonders now if beefy fit thinks that tight dressing is the only thing keeping his operative site intact. Patient wonders about the use of sutures in beefy fits practice. Shakes fuzzy head in sadness. Patient evilly wishes broken limb for beefy fit, and knows beefy fit will opt for narcotics for himself.

Moral: Many doctors are so concerned or altruistic about prescribing narcotics, they expand their dumbness to include the fresh post op patient who gets discharged. Narcotics have always been proven to be the best treatment in acute pain. Period. Just because of a bunch of toothless Oxy heads, doctors are afraid of their regulatory bodies and its auditing of their presciption habits, to suffering of their "real" patients.

Thus endith left handed, Percocet enabled, one finger typed bedtime story.
I hope you found it helpful and mildly entertaining.

/oh... healing brush and lens flare.

In cases like this, it is best to go with MSPaint* as EVERYTHING looks like it was done with one's off hand.

/feel better, enjoy your Percocets :)

*Is MSPaint even still on Win7, I've had it for over a year and never thought to look.
 
‘’ 2013-05-03 04:18:37 PM  
Sorry to hear your woes Dumski.  My mother had sort of an opposite problem when she came home after her double knee replacement.  They sent her home with Oxycodone, and the stuff nearly drove her out of her mind.  She could tell she was becoming addicted to it, so she quit it cold turkey and decided to live with the pain instead.

Get better soon!

Ennuipoet: Is MSPaint even still on Win7, I've had it for over a year and never thought to look.


Yup, I use it quite frequently.  They made changes to it for the Windows 7 version so I had to kind of relearn how to use it.
 
‘’ 2013-05-03 04:50:13 PM  
Dumski - At least you're still alive......for now. :)

When you're sufficiently healed, we'll send you out to one of our Fark minor league shooping facilities on a rehab assignment. But, for the time being, consider yourself on the 15-day disabled list.

ps...Lootie says to forget the narcotics and drink more beer.
