I dislocated my elbow when I was around five during an extremely intense session of Ring Around the Rosies... lol, 11 years later and I still remember the pain! I don't know how you're surviving with a fractured wrist too

Good luck!

I Survived!! ~xray pics included~

Hey guys I got through my surgery perfectly!

Doctor said my elbow is perfect...Just going to be sore for a few days. The plate went into my wrist without a hitch. Nothing really hurts except for the incision but they said my arm may sweat under the cast and the rest of the iodine on my arm may be going into it...no biggie as I'm not allergic just annoying haha. Also my fingers keep twitching haha....it's because they had to move tendons and stuff around to put the plate in...It's really funny, I just sit and watch them twitch haha

Doctor said in a week and a half my arm will be out of the cast and I'll be starting physical therapy that day. He said as long as I follow his instructions to a "T" I'll be back in the saddle doing light riding in a few weeks

If you have any questions about the surgery or what they did feel free to ask....it's definitely a learning experience or those who have not had this happen to them

Also thank you so much to those who kept me in their thoughts and offered words of encouragement....you guys kept a smile on my facee everytime I read the thread

Sorry about grammar mistakes as well it's more difficult thsan I thought to type one handed haha

Also here are some Xrays during the surgery...before the plate and after.
First 2 are before
Last 2 are after
You can definitely see a huge difference in the way my arm looks in the side shots(the ones on the right)

Wow! That seriously sucks. You sound like you're doing good, though. From what my mom and sister said (mom broke her ankle years ago and had to have pins and a plate...sister broke her ankle a couple of months ago and had to have a plate), physical therapy hurts almost worse than the actual injury. Not to scare you, just preparing you.

Hope you heal well and your kitty is very cute.

Wow, it does look a lot better!! You'll be back to almost normal in no time . Do you know, do they plan to go back later and remove the plate/screws or is it just in there forever?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Draft- I does suck a bit but hey it happened can't change it now haha. Yeah I know PT is going to be a bugger but to prepare me my Dr said to keep it out of the sling whenever I am sitting or laying down and hold my arm vertical while wiggling my fingers for a few minutes at a time. He said this'll get my tendons and whatnot moving so PT will be easier and go quicker....The funny thing is when I move them I can Feel the tendons and stuff moving it's pretty cool haha.

And thanks about Soxy.....He's appointed himself my official furry Dr. And follows me EVERYWHERE and as soon as I lay down he jumps up and rests his head on my arm. He justs wants me to get better haha.It's amazing how they know.

After I fell off my friend threw TC into the pasture by the arena where I was laying and he was watching me, running the fence, and calling to me...it's like he knew something was wrong.

Smrobs- thanks I thought it did haha. My dad showed me the Xrays last night when I woke up and I was like "cool! You can really see the difference"

My dr. Said they should stay in forever but down the road if the screws feel like they are starting to move(which is not uncommon) it may have to be removed...but he said since I'm about done growing it should be no problem with them moving.
