I not only had cast around a good part of my right arm but I also had 3 pins inside my wrist. Everytime if someone asked if it weren’t itching under my cast I would answer “No, but maybe that’s because everytime I move my fingers, I can feel the pins scrape at the inside of my skin“. (This reply always led to horror-struck faces.)
These pins were completely buried inside my wrist They have been removed last Thursday, while I was partially under. I must say the feeling of having something removed out of my bones was quite intresting, at the very least. I wouldn’t object to experiencing that againDon’t worry, I am not planning to break something againBesides the force that was used scared the hell out of me. A nurse had to hold down my wrist while the surgeon used so much force to remove the pins, that all I could think was “Please, don’t break my wrist again“.
I would love to gross you guys out with a picture of the pins covered in my blood. Unfortunately, a picture of the wounds being sticthed and the long elegant fingers of surgeon Vijgen will have to do.
Since another doctor just went nuclear on my arse when I tried (= I didn’t stand a chance) to discuss the pro’s and cons off a sub-clavicular piercing. (Ever noticed, how all doctors are great at the “Child, I am the parent you’ve never had and right now, I am very dissapointend in you” lecture?) I’ve let go of the idea of permanent foreign objects inside me. Unless, I live to see an RFID chip forced inside me, all for the sake of “national security” of course
Here you can read and see how someone is having that crap planted inside him voluntarily at a hackers conference of all placesWhich reminds me, I still have to read “This Perfect Day” by Ira Levin in which the main character is nicknamed “Chip”.
Btw, here is a scan of my broken wrist, next time I’m in the hospital I’ll see if I can get a scan of my wrist with the pins inside
