Had a bit off an off today and fell really hard with one wrist i assume taking most of the impact. It effing hurts, and is hurting more by the hour, unable to use it but no obvious swelling or bruising (yet).
Are there any obvious symptoms of fracture rather than just a heavy fall? Not really looking foward to long wait in a&e.Posted 4 years agoM1llh0useMember
When I broke (both of) mine I knew one was fubar’d straight away, then the swelling came up on the other and I had to properly kick off at hospital to get them to x-ray it. Low and behold they found the 2nd one fractured as well.
But if its hurting get it checked out properly!Posted 4 years agonukeSubscriber
Had an OTB off down a gulley: hurt at first but felt ok later although couldn’t use it much, didn’t look particularly bruised/swollen but I felt a bit sick so got myself down the local MIU …had an xray and first thing the nurse said was “well that’s a mess”…comminuted distal radius fracture if I remember correctly which resulted in surgery. That was start of April…just riding again now. 🙁
In summary, get it checked…good luckPosted 4 years agoGJPMember
Can I open a jam jar! No point in trying that one!
Went to local minor injuries along with every other man and his dog on a Sunday summer afternoon. Suspected broken scaphoid so now in plaster for 10 days before next x rays. At least the arm ain’t broken which is what they also suspected.
It was ok for the first hour but now itches like crazy. But more importantly how do I scratch my bum 🙂Posted 4 years ago
