    Hope it heals soon! It looks like they didn't need to pot it?

    Oh man, that's a bummer, as we used to say. Heal soon, but remember, if you'e a righty, it's only your pickin' hand.

    Nah.

    It’s called an avulsion where a fragment of bone pulls away from the main bone. It’s affecting my tendons.

    I can with a bit of pain:


    A play the guitar
    B earn a living
    C lift a pint glass

    I can’t:

    A Do DIY
    B help with household chores much
    C take out the bins

    So it’s not all bad. ;)

    It's not very often that the opportunity comes along to not be able to take out the trash or help with chores. You need to milk this for all it's worth.:)

    Ouch! I’m glad it’s no worse than it is. I guess I’m of the age where friends start breaking wrists with some frequency, including one who broke both simultaneously in a fall on an icy drive. It has me thinking “don’t try to break your fall!” if I slip.

    I hope ya heal soon and well.

    Broke my left wrist about four years ago when I was knocked down while I was crossing the road by a car turning the wrong way coming out of a car park. I was plastered up from elbow to knuckle for five weeks.

    The break healed up OK but I've never regained full movement of my left hand. I can no longer play barre chords as the joint just won't bend enough.

    Been there, done that. I was out of action for a few weeks then I picked up the guitar again at home. It was my left hand so I found that playing was very good therapy and great exercise.
    The broken wrist healed over time and I now have no problems with it.
    I hope the same for you.
