The worst being not able to get back riding? Or at least riding at the same level?
An innocuous crash this summer in the Alps left me with a fractured scaphoid that really took it's time to heal. I was in cast for 10 weeks. Unfortunately the majority of pain and associated restricted movement does not involve the scaphoid but a previous fracture of the ulna. Right at the top on the opposite side to the scaphoid. The fracture and soft tissue damage has been aggravated or damaged further.
I tried making this point several times during my numerous visits to the fracture clinic but I was always told to wait to see if things improve along with the scaphoid. They haven't. I'm unable to put weight through it 13 weeks on and cannot get into a press up position, use to push on, lack the same movement as the other wrist, etc, etc.
I'm off to the physio next week but feel quite disheartened by it all as I can't see myself riding anytime soon.
Anyone else injured with no knowledge of when they'll be back riding?
