Hey all,

I'm taking a leave of absence for about a month. (I'll be around to monitor, etc).

I have a wrist surgery scheduled today @ noon EST. Obviously I won't be able to play guitar, type, do basic functions for awhile until I get my cast removed and my hand is healed.
(FYI: I have a cyst on top of a nerve on my left wrist which is my primary hand...and surprisingly I play guitar right handed)

 

Hopefully everything goes perfect. My wonderful staff here at CustomsForge will take care of the site while I am in recovery/rehab. 

And yes, a month or so without guitar is going to drive me literally insane. My calluses will go away and everything :( But I'm looking forward to even getting better after the surgery!

 

See you all in a month.

 

- Mark

 

edit: I'm recovering now and they said it was huge! Thanks for all of the support.

edit2: 4/16/2015 Update
New cast and a new prescription of oxy for the pain. I've been dealing with pain but I do have full movement coming back to my hand. I just can't use it for another two weeks and I have a follow up in 4 weeks.

Thanks for all your messages. Here's a cast I wish you all could sign for me :)

Hope everything goes perfect @Unleashed2k. My primary hand is my right, yet I play guitar left handed. :P  Probably has something to do with your strong hand wanting to do the fretting or something. I know you'll come back stronger than ever.

Oh, best of luck!

 

When I was in hospital, I managed to create a CDLC… I still haven't finished it though. :D


All about the bass, no treble...

Did you remember to bring a flask?

Good to hear that it went well and the next post should be "I'm playing my guitar again" ;)

Recovery will take a few time, but then everything will be as before or even better.
