Two Broken Wrists! Ouch !!
by Janet02062, 2 minutes ago
On Sept. 6th this year, I tripped and fell over my 2 dogs leashes. As I lay there, fortunatly able to hit speed dial for my friend to call an ambulance, I thought of how lucky I was that I didn't break my jaw ! After 2 casts and not being able to do much of anything ( 8 lbs. later ) but lay in bed and eat, I am healing slowly because of my age (64) and having my right hand being "set". I am right-handed (figures) ! It's been almost 3 months and I was told that it takes a very long time to heal---I am having therapy twice a week, but my right wrist is so painful and looks deformed. Now I have developed Carpal Tunnel and am having surgery on Dec.14th. I was wondering if this pain could be from maybe the bone was "set" wrong or will it get better after the surgery and I get my feeling back in my fingers (except my baby finger that I can still feel ). My wrist keeps me awake at night and the pain actually burns ! Thank you in advance. J.
