Other problem: thumb tendon is unhappy. Doesn't slide smoothly through the tendon sheath.
How my body is like the Book of Numbers in the Torah: there's a metric assload of "begat"ting going on here. The anti-seizure meds begat the weight loss, which begat the heart problem (I think); tendonitis begat a ganglion cyst, or vice versa, or hell, I don't know. Numbers was always my least favorite.
