I did cry, lol. My Fiance kept saying, babe, it’s okay, we will get it fixed. Crying also didn’t help me relax, which he kept telling me to do. I don’t see how I will relax when he comes at me with big cutters and slices my ring off. I seriously cry thinking about it 🙁
The dental floss method is when someone (FI in my case) wraps dental floss VERY tightly up the length of your finger so it compresses and the ring (hopefully) is able to come off. It looks and sounds very painful, but I keep telling Fiance that my finger will heal, and my ring won’t. He also reminds me my finger is more important and threatens to cut it off in my sleep 😛
I was thinking of trying this tonight. So far, I have just tried ice and it hasn’t worked at all 🙁
My Fiance says it’s because I traumatized my finger forcing the ring off and on when it was swollen. Wen I touch it, it does feel hard, almost like a bug bite would feel. I may give it a few more days and see if it goes down naturally.
This is what we are going to try, but with dental floss. I don’t want to wait 5 hours at the emergency room, so Fiance is going to do it. That will be my last resort before cutting it off.
True. I have cut out sodium and am trying to drink a ton of water. I was thinking of taking a diuretic or however you spell it.
My jeweller is the one who said cut it off and I had a mini freak out right in the store. My Fiance was like, babe, this is NOT brining your body temperature down, lol.
I think Fiance will be the one to do the surgery. I went to a pharmacy yesterday and they suggested hemroid cream!! Seriously. I was desperate, so I tried it…didn’t work, lol.
I haven’t tried Vaseline yet. I’m just scared if I keep *pulling* the swelling will get worse.
I’ve been trying to twist but it’s so frustrating I just want to yank it off. I’ve been doing my best to ignore it today.
