I attended A and E one morning recently. I woke up at 10 pm the evening before with an extremely painful little finger of my left hand. On waking again at approx. 7:30 am, I woke with the end of my little finger badly bruised and a black eye. Your doctor said I'd been bitten by an insect or spider, and on my insistence taped my little finger and ring finger together. That evening, I attended Geelong Hospital.
Geelong Hospital x-rayed my finger, found two breaks, and I had surgery to insert pins and plaster my finger. It is thought that the injuries occurred when I hit the side table in my sleep, as I'm a very restless sleeper. I would like to be involved in the follow up to this complaint.
