Another thing to remember is the sweating in the cast when you ride. All casts pretty much stink but after a couple months in one while snowboarding, mine was rank.

Hidde Hmm, I doubt a physiotherapist is able to make my arm heal faster. He will be able to help me gain strength etc again with my arm(wich I'm allowed to, since that puts pressure on the other bone and is not a short, high impact) but that doesn't speed up the process of a bone healing, does it?

I do go to a sports physiotherapist btw, been there way too much already last 2 years...

timmytard You should be able to, no problem.

This is what you need to do.

Go to physiotherapy as much as you can, never miss it.
If you can find a good sports specific physiotherapist, go to that guy/girl.
There is a big difference between a sports physiotherapist & the 60 year old guy that treats your grandma for her broken hip. It's about 2 months.

Tell him you need to get back out there & to put you through the wringer.
It's gonna hurt & it ain't much fun but the more you can endure the faster you'll be back out there.

TheMan I'm addicted too, but you should wait till it's well healed. I know it's hard. Here's why. I'm old. I have beat up my body. The PAIN of every injury you will ever have, over the course of your lifetime, will return. Read that line again. That is not the last time you'll feel that injury. Couch potatoes die of Heart Attack. Active people die of agony.

well, kinda. When I busted my finger I was snowboarding. So i just got drunk at the bar while my hand swelled up and turned purple then got back on the gondola. Let me tell you the bartender was pouring some serious sympathy drinks too, I think he just gave me a glass of vodka.....I hope I remembered to tip him well....


but yes, a little buzz takes the edge off the pain. Hopefully you will have none by Feb!

Hidde Sorry for not having English as my native language... First 2 questions did not seem that sarcastic too. Or if you were referring to the drinking stuff, I was not serious at all.

And I'm not in the phase that everything I do hurts, not that it matters, cos' a fall would potentially fuck up my arm anyway...

killclimbz The longer you can wait to let the arm heal the better. 5 months is obviously going to be better than three months.

kpd2003 not sure how the sarcasm could've possibly been missed

fine i'll write a semi-serious response:

The cast wont save you - the extra protection wont save you - meditation and prayer wont save you. Falling on a broken arm is not fun. If you do go, are you going to be protecting your arm, or will you be snowboarding? Trying to do both will just ruin the fun of snowboarding. (Personal Opinion)

Also, if you do go, i hope you have a high pain tolerance. Every little thing you do will hurt - tying boot laces, scratching your ass, adjusting your goggles. (Personal Experience)

It takes a special and mostly fucked up person to go into a situation where you know you are doing permanent damage to your body but do it anyways. I fall into that category (Personal Problem).


Your chances of being there in 3 months are up to you. My first post was the fun way around typing this shitty response

Hidde What do you mean with alcohol helps? Like, if I fall and have pain I should hit a pub and get wasted?

Alcohol age is(brace yourselves!) 16 years old for alcoholic drinks that have an alcoholic percentage of 14,9 or lower, and 18 for drinks that have a higher percentage of alcohol. But since the Netherlands is flatter than your average pancake and has like 3 snowy days a year, I'd rather go to Austria to board. Dunno about the drinking age there, not that anyone cares about it haha.

Oh and by the way, original pain? You mean the pain I had when it had just happen? Well, there was none, guess that's adrenaline... The pain while taking x-rays was unbearable though...
