My late doctor update.

Thursday, June 12, 2014

I went and saw an orthopedic specialist on Monday. Had some really good news. My injuries are to the top of my radius by my elbow and the base of my thumb metacarpal. I stiff-armed myself from the ground to protect myself and the bike. Now I have a bunch cracks, micro-cracks, fractures, or whatever you would like to call them from the shock of crashing at 13.7 MPH. The good news is no cast. The bad news is some braces, a sling, and pain every time I move it the wrong way.

Not the best, or even great, but better than the worst. Now it's just life.

    Glad that you don't have to wear a cast and hopefully by now the bone pain is improving. I know that you will heal quickly.

    so ice, an anti-inflammatory, keeping it wrapped up, etc., etc., and trying patiently to wait for it to heal. (sigh). You'll get through it like a champ, I'm sure.

    Yow! sorry about the bad news. Do what the doctors say -- I've never found that rushing into things works well. Hang in there! This too shall pass.

    There is always that chance of crashing & burning when we go hard....
    SOMETIMES the benefits outweigh the risks.
    Dare I say it was worth it??


    I hope you heal quick...don't you have a ton of races this season?

    Oh Konrad. Please do take care of yourself as you heal. Yeah, it's not the best thing in the world, but I know you can manage and will do the best you can with your braces and sling.
