4 weeks in a sling.
I can't really see the break here, but apparently a bit of bone is broken off and if I don't wear the sling my shoulder will dislocate and I'll need surgery to put screws in.
Ouch. Unlucky. Right arm too - that’s going to make things awkward isn’t it?
Really really tough. I had no idea how much I favoured my right hand.
Somethings are really tough.
That fucking sucks dude. I reckon it’s karma or something though. You got a really good job that you actually wanted to do, and to balance things out, you arm had to be broken.
I remember the only time I ever broke something (a metatarsal in my right foot) it was one of those ‘invisible’ breaks like this one. I didn’t get mine losing my virginity though.
Oooh. Still, a skiing accident is quite macho and cool. I did the same thing to my shoulder dancing to Warrant, for which there is no kudos to be had whatsoever.
This looks exactly like what happen to my shoulder - wear the sling, you really don’t want to have the surgery!
Ooh, nasty. Shoulders are buggers, believe me. (But in case you ever need surgery get a second opinion about screws.)
Although, I was met off a plane (from Rome) one February and the person meeting me thought the plane in front was coming back from the Falklands what with all the injuries, until he realised it was from Austria and they were all ski-ing injuries.
Aren’t x-ray photos lovely?
Bummer. Wish it better. (This would seem to back up my theory that exercise is bad for you. You don’t see us couch potatoes sustaining serious injury, except maybe repetitive strain injury from using the remote.)
From what I can see the bit that has broken off is the light bit at top right of the head of the humerus, just beneath where the two rounded parts meet. That bit of bone is where one of the four muscle groups connects your humerus to your shoulder. Thats why it might pop out! Now listen to your doctor and have a speedy recovery.
F’ing Ada. On the bright side, welcome to the clan.
Ouch. At least it didn’t happen on the first day though. Good luck teaching your left hand to do all those things it’ll have to do now.
How about a few details of how it occurred. Was it a glorious wipe-out while doing a 720 mid-air, or an ignominious tripping over a set of skis on the way to the bar.
Or perhaps not paying attention when a particularly attractive ‘babe’ went past.
Is that a chip on your shoulder??
Glad to see you’re not performing as much as when you were young (when you got a little splinter)!
Yowsers! I hope it’s not too painful, and it all puts itself back together again properly.
C’mon! Don’t be so grumpy.
Snap out of it!
I really feel for you. I was useless with my left arm out of action and that’s not my dominant one, but at least my incident didn’t cut short a holiday.
How’d you get a copy of the x-ray? Or did you just snap a pic of it with your camera? I wonder if the hospital would let me do the same with mine…
Wot they all said.
Coupled with “Ouch”
