Sabowin- I actually don'y know....he never showed me haha. Probably because I was still a little out of it from the anesthesia.

Tiny- Thanks. I've had close calls too. My luck just ran out. The worst part is it would have been a good fall if I just hadn't thrown my arm out behind me. And yeah it was my left arm....thank goodness I am right handed. Typing is a tad odd. I'm so used to using both hands but I can still move pretty quickly around the's just frustrating because I have to really watch where my fingers go and it's hard to capitalize stuff sometimes. Also therre are always a few spelling mistakes that I tend to notice later haha.

Oh man, that looks horrible! I would've fainted if I saw my arm like that.

I wish you the best of luck for recovery.

It looks to me like the wrist fracture is among the small carpal bones at the base of the hand. With them being so small and oddly shaped, it is hard to spot a fracture without being really familiar with how normal ones look.

Those x-rays are certainly interesting and they look painful. Wow.

I'm sorry that look like it hurt. Hoping for a speedy recovery for you! It sounds like you handled it better than I would have, I'm a total wimp when it comes to pain :)

Just healing up from a wrist fracture myself - long bone (radius) and navicular or scaphoid bone. My horsey friends made jokes about whether they still shoot you if you break your navicular.... ha ha! No dislocated elbow, though - your x-rays made my stomach flip! That looked horrible.

The doctor in the ER told me to eat cottage cheese - it contains calcium, of course, plus K2 which helps the bone tissue lay down a web for the new bone cells to attach to. Very cool medical science discovery. Other foods that work are curd cheese (like cheddar) and probably sauerkraut and fermented soy (natto?). Anyway, it worked great for me - it healed faster than the doctor expected even though he said on re-check the fractures were worse than he originally thought.

Best of luck - keep us posted and we'll keep fingers crossed that you don't need pins...

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.

Green Broke
Oh yeah girl! I did the SAME thing..not jumping though. I dislocated my elbow, cracked the joint in there and sprained my wrist... At first I thought it was really cool but then the adrenaline went away and the pain was awful. I had to wear a full arm cast for 3 weeks. I was extremely doped up but I sat up and yelled when the doctor popped it back in place. I think physical therapy sucked almost as bad as dislocating it...Hope you feel better soon! I know that's not fun. At least you'll have a pretty cool story.

I've dislocated both knees. They loaded me up with Valium then popped it back in place. I remember bolting upright and screaming, 'Geez frakkin' cripes, that farkin' hurt'* then giggling, 'but I'll never remember it'.

Ouch. I've dislocated my elbow and very clearly remember the pain, despite the fact I was four years old!

Sending healing thoughts!
