|Way to go Bernhard!! im sure u were smiling ear to ear like i was just sitting on the board. :-D
i was told not to tell since i would be told not 2 sk8 and just bad statistics. i think a shattered bone is direct impact but splintering might mean twisting too wh/ better guards might help. time to work core muscles i guess so twistin 2 knees is easy. but if i fall sideways, i want 2 keep arms in now and have thick elbows 2 slide on and other joints. i think tucked is better if bad position?
i am also scared!
today no work but good, very achy!!!!!! i think it will b 1 bone in 1 week lol. i try now 2 eat more healthy foods even if stuffed since my arm seems to b yelling at me it needs more, i dont want it 2 take from other bones. 100F but want 2 go 4 walk w/ sling since circulation good and boring here. i feel mentally better if i work, more pride but health must b #1 now. i think w/ my surgery, should have been off 1 month but i am managing.
i will go slower on vert til i learn how to fall right. most ask me 2 quit but i want 2 smile and b happy. most pain is still financial. i hurt and my bf has 2 deal w/ me being crabby and irritable so poor guy suffers 2. so if i get crabby here, i apologize. i like all sk8s btw, we all r there 4 same reason, mean no harm. i will go lie down and grunt and groan and complain for a short bit to try to get it all out lol. then i will go 4 my happy walk!
: : i spoke to my boss and no worries on me losing my job, he says im doing well and take off what i need so trying to take just one day off. i hope that will make pain less, healing faster and will be enough to get by.
: It's good that you can at least partially work. Maybe work even distracts from pain?
: : i am greedy now, i want to be able to afford PD pads so i can sk8 when i can sk8 but i need 2 jobs 4 that really. not sure but injury might just be from direct impact since it was shattered? i might need to tell dr. how it happened so he can advice me here. i think i can sew my bf's old PD elbows for a bit though.
: I don't know if the doctor can advice you. Most important for you is to not do crash landings. Protection wear can only do so much and there is no protection save a knights armour that would have prevented my hand from breaking on the slam I did on May 29.
: : but i think i need to be honest w/ dr. how i did it to find out what i can do to prevent/lessen injury.: : knowing i AM healing is such a relief, financial too!
: My experiece with telling them how my injury happened: The doctors didn't comment at all and the physiotherapist doesn't want me to do it again (yet).
: The most important prevention is a proper falling technique. Learn to allways land on your knee pads and slide it out.
: BTW.: My hand makes good progress. I can play a bit guitar again, though overstretching my fingers is impossible at the moment. Therefore some grips are just out of reach at the moment. But I am really having fun playing some easy Giuliani waltzes.
