Those x-rays are certainly interesting and they look painful. Wow.
Thanks Smrobs....I found out today its fractured on my thumb side and rotated about 40 degrees up from where it should be. I'll try to post a picture of where it's fractured.
Okay sorry guys I slept all day. Ladt night my friend and dad rushed me to the ER around 11pm because I was in horrible pain and the 2 perkisets my dad gave me didnt help. My arm had swelled too much for the splint so they took it off and gave me ivs and other fun stuff.
I git out of there at 430am and went to the orthopedic at 730am. My wrist is fractured on the thumb side and is rotated up about 40 degrees.
I have surgery scheduled for Friday at 11am. They are going to be putting a plate in my wrist and checking to see if there was any bad damage to my elbow while im under anethesia. He said it is very, very unlikely and its only about a 3% chance they'll need to do something. I am currently on Perisets(i can't spel lol) and vitamin C tablets.
Thank you all so much for the well wishes...they keep me smiling and my spirits up! Mdr said I can be back to light riding on sane horses in about a month and a half(he said mostly pony rides to curve my riding addiction haha I love my dr he's awesome.) He said I have a really strong and determined character because when he rotated my arm for Xrays he said most patients would have passed out from the pain from this type of injury. But I sat there joking around with him through it.
Here is a picture of the Xray where my wrist is fractured and then a shot of my wrist after they took my old splint off.Its all fun swollen and you can see the rotation upwards....the curve reminds me of a dinnner fork haha.
