Hi all, thought I would post re my absence from riding. It was a case of doing too much too soon and my hand started to get ever more painful with bleeding (and bad smells coming from under my two injured nails)
To spare too much graphic info, one nail came off on its own now healing OK the other one would not and continued to get worse. So like a lose tooth I worked and worked it and eventually got it off.
I am just letting heal a bit now and hoping to be riding again very soon.
Sorry again if I have given too much information!
Never thought it would take this long to get better.
