Was riding in Borderland and fell off a couple foot rock ledge, landed on my wrist. It swelled up and bruised, along with alot of pain, so I went to get X-rays at an orthopedic doctor. He said it was most likely a fracture of the Scaphiod bone, along the fractures can take some time to show up on the X-rays. I have a cast on it now, and am going back on friday for follow up scans.
Best case is just a bad sprain, and i'll have no cast but have to take it easy for a few weeks. Worst case is 12weeks-6 months in cast, or a screw to hold the bone together.
All this happens but a few days after my first race, when I was really looking foward to the last race at Nemba fest, bummer. Guess I'll just have to hit the gym instead of the trails for awhile.
