Default Just got back from the doctor.

     

I went in for my x-rays, the ones that would determine whether or not surgery would be needed and as it turns out, the bone is healing fine and will not require surgery. So, I'm obviously very glad for that.

Further, my doctor told me I don't have to wear the splint anymore, because having my arm free and using it a little bit will help the healing process. So I'm glad for that, too.

All in all, a good day at the doctor's for me.

He says fractuers like the one I got take up to 6 weeks to heal, and it's already been a week and a half, so basically in a month I can start working out and riding again. Man, it's going to be a long month, heheh.

Great news indeed. That month will drag, but before you know it you'll be back in the saddle again

The doctor i went to said the same thing to me, they always say that you may need surgery just for a broken bone and you end up never getting it. I had to wait 6 weeks too to get my cast off, but it is only down to about a week.
btw, i just got back from the doctors too about an hour ago to get a new cast put on

Luckily, no cast for me. The day I broke it, the ER nurse put a splint on me and gave me a sling for the arm, and that's what I've had since I did it a week and a half ago. Today, the doctor told me not to wear the splint anymore, so now I don't have anything on my arm. I'm a free man! hahah

But I'll look funny to people if they see me walking around, because my right arm will hang and swing naturally, while my left will stay a little bent and held in to my side. People will be calling me Gimpy McGimplestein.

And congrats on healing up without surgery. We all know surgery sucks.
