|: : 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.
good news, congrats.
i still reckon youll be back at it inside of 3 months,
and so you should.
keep your spirits up. i mean spirits high not top shelf.
cheers, h .
