On July 20, I cut my finger and ended up in the emergency room where I got eight stitches. The dr. there was concerned, referred me to a hand surgeon immediately. That Doctor tells me I cut the nerve and wants to schedule me for surgery right away. I tell him no, that I needed a second opinion. I have a 2nd opinion for September 2. I am so scared, kind of down. I was suppose to start my internship on July 23. I needed 1-180 to go into my 200's, and I wanted to take the state test in November. My heart feels kind of broken, and sad. I really, really wanted to do this. I really don't want to get a surgery and end up worse like a lot of people do. And, if I do get the surgery, I probably wont be back to normal for about a year. It's depressing. I've done a little bit of research on cut nerves, and it doesn't look too good for me. Anybody out there had anything like this happen to them? And if yes, what did you do? Thanks for hearing me out.
