So Much Pain (part 2)

Vicodin is not touching the pain I am experiencing, so I have called my doctor's office.  Awaiting a callback.

Here are pictures for those that are curious:

Are you trying to use cold water for swelling it may help but yes it looks very swollen up to me.

Yes, I was soaking it last night for a while.  Haven't yet this morning, but I will soon.

How long has it been that massive?
Whitehair

Since I woke up yesterday.  The swelling is just starting to go down a bit today.  I am regaining use of a third finger, but still can't really use my thumb or my first finger.

Keep an eye on the wounds if they start to ooze anything other than plasma I'd recommend an immediate call to the doctors if not a full fledged visit to the hospital or walk in clinic.

Not oozing at all unless i soak it, and then just a very little at the worst of the two punctures.  Healing is going VERY slow.

Are you on just antibiodics or is the doctor having you take an antihistamine as well?

Just antibiotics and vicodin.

If it doesn't go down too much today I'd call and see if its maybe an allergic reaction as well.

It is looking a bit better, but still not good.

well that looks awful painful and who would have though of a poisonous cat.  I hope you are checking with your doc, those suckers can carry some nasty stuff

She put me on antibiotics yesterday.  I have a followup Thursday or Friday to see how I am doing, but I am still far from recovered.

Please keep us informed? O_O

I will.

Still teetering in the balance.  Swelling is going down some, but redness is spreading which isn't good.

I hope to know how it's gone today.  worried about you.

I am better and worse both.  I have regained partial use of my middle finger but still can't move my index finger and can't hold anything with the hand.  I can somewhat use my trackball though.  I can't drive or dress/undress myself, which would make bathroom calls an issue if i were to try to go to work.  

I was going to _try_ to work from home today, but my boss said it didn't sound like I would be effective and to take the day off.
