    Hurts....inside too

    August 3rd at Northstar I received my first broken bone at 32. Dislocated, shattered, feathered, really bad, worst i've seen, long road ahead and swollen for a while is the fun things my doctor and physical therapist have told me.
    Had to walk down 1/4 mile on steep/rocky section of trail, 30 minute bumpy car ride to parking lot and 1 1/2 hour ride to hospital gently holding up my wrist. I had just got a pair of $150 Dainese elbow pads and decided they would have to cut them off at the hospital.......last second in the parking lot I had my wife pull it off (not wasting that much) and whew it hurt like heck!
    Still in a splint and maybe 50% of hand movement back. Really missing riding.

    looks like paperclips. I bet it doesn't feel like paper clips though.

    dude, i broke my first bone at soquel demo forest when i was 33---was definitely unpleasant (i went over the bars, heard a crunch, and saw that my left forearm was pointing in the "wrong" direction).

    take it easy for a while, try to stay active, and get on the PT as soon as you can. the PT will be essential to regaining range of motion and full use of everything. also be sure to find a good physical therapist: one that observes how you do the exercises and suggests new ones as you improve. i actually think often times the PT knows more than the ortho.
