fractured scaphoid

Postby moomin1982 » Mon Oct 21, 2013 9:07 pm

Hi all
I havent been on for a while but have been getting on ok until I took a little tumble. I have fractured my scaphoid ( the bone in my wrist at the vase of my thumb). I am now facing 8-12 weeks in plaster and was wondering if anyone has suffered this before and how they coped? Ghe vad weather has already started a flare up in my fibro symptoms and unfortunately my worst area is my hands and fingers.
Definately not looking forward to winter x

I have had both mine broken! Not at the same time tho.... Painful, bad bone to break as the nerves run thru the end of it, has to be set in a certain way, I needed loads of physio after with one of them..... I still have weakness in both to this day and it was 2001 and 2003 when they were broken....

Good luck with that x
