Yikes..... as someone recovering from a similar injury, I feel every bit of that from the pic. Hope your treatment goes smoothly and your recovery is solid.
That's for the best, considering. My fracture was deemed clean enough to not need surgery, only to be declared a malunion after the cast came off. It needed corrective surgery, plates, the whole nine yards. That took most of last year, accompanied by the legal ménage à trois with my lawyer, insurance, and the hospital. This season I got mobility and strength back to where I am snowboarding again, albeit with a wrist guard under the glove. Still feel a sharp zing sometimes, like when I inadvertently see other people's bent wrists...Yeah I'm going in for surgery on Thursday. Bones are fractured in multiple places so I need some titanium plates in there.
When I hesitated about going the corrective surgery route I was told that they are better the sooner they are done and that after a certain time, there is a point where it isn't really beneficial or something to that effect. As part of the reconstruction I am due for a removal surgery in April that should further my mobility and strength.I broke a collarbone many years ago and it didn't quite heal how it's supposed to be. I wonder if they can correct it.
My goal is to become bionic man.
Yes, complete your induction into the bionic race!Got x-ray yet for the new hardware? I want to see
