yeah thats what i'm thinking. It's my trailing arm. I have to see how good they set it after surgery. but yeah I would be that person riding cast style against better judgement for sure. Not immediately but I know I'm at least getting one run in last day of season even if it's only just a cruiser. That's fine.

yeah no trailing arm luck for me...
Looks like I can never half ass anything.
So the tree decided to smash my Ulna into 30 pieces.. surgery took 3 hours to piece it back together with 2 more days in the hospital on a pain drip.
Too much swelling going on so I don't have a full cast, just a half plaster cast splint between cotton, ace bandage and a sling. Moving my fingers in painful.. and I can't drive my stick shift.. was told I need PT to learn to use my left arm again so I recovery is going to be a lot longer than I thought. No sports of any kind for 4 months nothing that can risk me falling. Blahhhhh.... Can't ever just break a bone like a normal person had to go over the top.

These pain pills I'm on (2 weeks worth) are fricken tripping me out at night. I've been having crazy nightmares and hallucinations. I'm trying to cut back on them as quick as possible.

On the bright side I can ride next year with a hinge brace all season. Family and I have argued because I was told I need to reevaluate my life after two major injuries.. I pretty much just called them selfish for ever insisting I give up something I love in my life just for their own peace of mind... I know they really care but it's just not fair to have to argue and defend myself every time I get hurt. Oh it just sucks... sorry I just needed to vent a lil.



Anyway here's my hardware. Pretty cool huh? It runs over half the length of my forearm with at least 1o screws.

two days out of the hospital tho I decided to pull through and still go to the Powder Mountain rail jam to support my employer "Lucky Slice" for sponsoring the event with more snowboard community support, and my 3 friends who competed in the comp. Hosted by Kevin Pearce and Danny Davis so thought it would lift me and my friend Vanessa's spirits.. she just had repairative knee surgery after an accident in the park so she drove us on crutches... and the two of us made a whole person... maybe not the wisest thing we should have done that day but ah well.. hyrocodone's a hell of a drug.

Damn Karasene, you didn't just break your arm, you straight blew it up! Sucks to be sidelined for the end of the season, but at least you know you get to ride again. Here's to a speedy recovery for you.

Why aren't you wearing body armor or at least padding on your limbs?

Indiscretion of youth, I suppose?

You should wear a helmet when you leave the house.

What is that, advice? Usually people don't put on a cast until AFTER they break the limb in question.
