Banker Undergoes Surgery For Using iPhone Too Much

Tendons in a mortgage banker’s thumb became so inflamed from excessive iPhone use that she had to get the tendons surgically removed.

The woman spent up to 12 hours per day communicating with clients on her iPhone, eventually succumbing to pain, numbness, inflammation and tingling. “I’m texted out,” she said

Recovery time for hand surgery can take up to two months. So, instead of using her thumbs, she will now use the “hunt and peck” method of typing.
