Found out a couple days ago that I have an appointment next Monday with a specialist at Modbury Hosp, so I'll get a proper cast then and they will possibly re-xray to re-asses the damage since now they will probably be able to see how the bone is healing where it was damaged. LMH said I had a fracture, but Modbury think from the first ex-rays (which were taken at LMH and transported to Modbury when I went there for the cast) I have a buckle fracture which basically means (from what I understood) one side of the bone buckled under compressive force whilst the other side of the bone streched but didn't seperate.
I reckon I'll get a purple cast (like I did with my other wrist) instead of a red cast (which I was considering as my other colour choice) - hopefully will be able to get a fibreglass cast which wont be too heavy.
Mum was rung by my old boss (from where I was Team Manager for the riding school) and I've been asked that whilst they go away for a holiday with the family in a month or so,I look after the property/animals (like I did in Janurary this year) so I am really looking forward to that – especially since I wil be allowed to ride then (my ex-boss/owner of the horses has also said I can ride whenever/on the trails/in the arenas) in a brace – should be fun! So I am really looking forward to that. If I want to trail ride I have been asked to take someone with me for safety, so I have a couple friends (who she knows and sees alot as they also learnt to ride there) who I am sure will come and ride which will be fun!
