    Scaphoid Fracture

    I know this has been discussed so many times but just wanna ask people about my specific case.

    I fell off my bike on a jump and fractured my scaphoid. From what ive read where i fractured mine its probably the best place. Its a small fracture at the top near the thumb, when i got it checked a week later the doctor was suprised at how little pain i was in around it and sent me to get another x-ray. Defo fractured and in a cast for 6 weeks.

    Im just wondering if anyones had a fracture like this and what their recovery was like. I hope i can get back riding again soon.

    No cast for me....

    Just an admonishment to not use the hand for 6 weeks.

    Broke mine in half. Had it screwed back together. About 6 weeks in a splint.

    Broke mine last year, in two places. One crack near the top, another about halfway down. After 6 weeks in a cast, the top one was pretty much healed, but I had to spend another 6 weeks in the cast. Was able to get back on the road bike after over 3 months, and about 4 months to get back on a mountain bike.
    A ride a day keeps the therapist away.
