Question Wrist Guard Gloves/ Riding with Wrist Guards

So, I have been meaning to start riding with wrist guards but it's too late now. I fractured my wrist in 4 places last week and had to have 2 screws put in. Season over basically. bummer of the year. I live and work on the mountain, so it's pure torture not being able to ride. I am thankful for the 40-some days I got in so far, but it looks like that might be it. If I am extremely careful, I might be able to sneak out for some spring riding if I wear a wrist guard and take it VERY easy (don't tell the dr).

Anyway, I'm looking for opinions on the gloves with built-in wrist guards. I think Dakine makes some. How much protection do they really offer? Would I be better off wearing something from the Dr., or a more protective piece? Anyone ride with wrist guards? How bad does it suck? Etc. Etc...

thanks for any and all help. I just want to get back out there asap!!!
