and yeah, it still hurts ...

finally got a call back from the stupid doc after my NevCity crash ...

"2nd row chip-fracture, the radiologist won't comment on the scaphoid"

When a scaphoid fracture fails to heal, the patient may initially get better for a while until the pieces of broken bone, which are loose inside the wrist joint, cause a deterioration of the wrist joint called traumatic arthritis. In this condition, the joint becomes painful and stiff, decreases grip strength and limits a person's ability to carry out even moderate activities. The time required for the arthritis to develop is variable depending upon how heavily the wrist is being used. Traumatic arthritis is different from rheumatoid or osteoarthritis. This process only occurs in the injured joint and does not spread to other joints if the body.


fuk you, doc.

you take a week to get back and then want me to see an ortho?

no.

kiss my limp wristed ass. i'll heal it up myself.

Good call on not racing at Sonoma. That course would've just wrecked that wrist.

hope you practiced your switch-hitting......

Which wrist was it again, so I know which side to nudge when I need a wheel.....

you are getting a house call, like it or not.

Get it fixed. Ruining the rest of your race season is nothing compared to a lifetime of chronic pain and limited mobility. No brainer.

Yikes, let someone help fix that puppy! Bone chips floating around...*shudder*

If you care for your body (now), it will serve you for a lifetime. If you ignore it, it will abandon you.

Dude....life-long sport here! There are ups and downs (how well I know that). We know you're in this for the long-term, so take care of yourself for the now-term.

Word!

This is off topic, but I just read this quote in the Letters at Cyclingnews.com. Even as a total non-sprinter I LOVE this quote.

"I am a sprinter, it's my job to suck your wheel. You are a climber, it's your job to drop me. DO YOUR JOB!"

My other favorite:

"You show me in the rule book where it says I have to pull through and I will."

"Don't be stupid, you moron!"

Wrists and other joints that see heavy use take a long time to heal. The more you aggrevate them the more portential injury you can cause. I would reckon you need your wrists for something even more productive than bike racing, producing income. One's income can drop substantially when on dissibility. Age 35 to 45 are your primary earning years, don't screw that up for a weekend of goofing off.
Does that make sense?

"It makes dollars and cents!"

Oh gosh...
trying to convince Michael with a dollars and cents argument?

uhhh....

X Bunny said...

i brought lots of fiberglass

i think a total body cast should do the trick

Velo Bella said...

well, not total.
thanks.

Look I don't know you but I broke my DAM schaphoid and elbow last year racing Pesky and didn't know about the scaphoid until about 9 weeks later. At that point, I had started riding again etc. Well the dang thing became non-union and I had to have a wrist surgery Jan 31st. I had to be OFF MY BIKE FOR 5 FRIKKEN MONTHS, the longest in years!! Thus no racing for me this year as I'm finally able to ride again. The scaphoid is NOTORIOUS for not healing as it has limited blood flow. I wish you luck but BE SMART. don't race on the dam thing.

Olaf Vanderhoot said...

Thanks Nancy.

got examined by the bunnyDoc and it is most likely NOT my scaphoid that busted. She says that the radiologist just wanted to cover his/her self because the basic wrist views don't cover the scaphoid visualization.

my fractures of the metacarpals on the distal (?) side of the wrist.

so, i'll get it looked at better next week and make sure all is good.

thanks for the words, though.

Oh, I hope that is so. Those dam things are hard to show up in Xrays. Best of luck to you :) I don't wish that on ANYBODY (especially a cyclist)

Oh gosh...

Hee he

Try Beer drinkin and Tossin and you may convince him.......

Velo Bella said...

Hey Nancy!

I was just telling Michael about your situation earlier today...now he knows I wasn't making you up!

I hope to see you out there soon!

Nancy Farzan said...

Hey Sabine,
I'm back on the bike and getting my miles in. there's a small chance I may get a race in at the end of the season, but if not, there is next year! You should get your saddle tomorrow!
