|Robert, if they dont do surgery I wont need PT,, my arm will never get back mobility again.
: : Claudine, I am glad you finally got checked. Did they say if you will need PT? Did your insurance cover your treatement? You are one tough chica. I am glad it was not more serious because not taking care of a break could be very serious. Time to heal and start skating again. I am curious what their game plan is. I would guess your bone has mostly healed and wonder what a cast is supposed to do? Definitely hit an ortho asap. Either bring the x-rays or he will take some new ones. Make sure he is on yoru insurance's in network provider list, if you have a ppo. Time will heal all wounds. Keep the faith.
: it shold be covered but it IS serious , the bone was shattered and was smashed in and is healing wrong so if they wont rebrake it and put a plate in it i will be permanently disabled the rest of my life now.
: : : Thats what I have and the radial bone is smashed into my other bone, its one bone now with one is cracked in at a 30 deg. angle. I CRIED!!!! Dr sent me to the ER so I thought they would do something since the radiology lady said they could fix it and Dr said it was an emergency. All I got was this enormous fiberglass splint from half way down my fingers to almost my freakin Shoulder. I said I cant work like this! The Dr said to go to an ortho and it might be too late or I would need a plate, Crap,,, I might never be able to move my arm!! One lady said I could take it off since its 2 pieces but I just had my bf cut out the palm of my hand so I could use a mouse lol. WTF does moving my fingers have to do with the fracture that is 2/3rd up to my elbow? I might still have to take the splint off at work cause I really dont want to be homeless. Life is not good, I just wanna skate! And open the door with my right arm one day.
