Better now that the staples were pulled.. He said 6-8 weeks from now to heal properly...
I guess I have to take better care of the healing process than I have been.... Hard headed old fart, that I am...

From the looks of the xrays, you are aree screwed up. Heal quickly and take good care of yourself.

I only liked your post because of the cool X Rays... not because you got hurt.. is it Titanium?

Probably set off metal detectors now!

Take care of you so that you can heal faster

I reckon you'll be a bit more careful in the future Dave. It's not the fall that hurts, it's that sudden stop at the end. RAY

I completely understand the hard headed. But that’s what will get you through to the other side, so not all bad. Glad you are on the mend.

Welcome to the human Barometer club Dave, from now on you will know at least two days before each rain storm. I have so much metal in my back that I feel the weather changes before most others do, I get super sore a day or two before each rain. Holy cow Dave you really did a job on that wrist, take care of yourself.

Well darn, Dave. I hate that for you. Do what they tell you so that you can put this all in the rearview of that flatbed....

That doesn't look the least bit fun. Glad to hear your feeling better I would suggest you listen to the Doctor and go easy on that thing till it heals the last thing you need is on going problems with it forever because you didn't let it heal properly. As was said unfortunately after this you will probably forecast rain and storms better than the weatherman

Glad to hear your healing well!
Take care & like Piney says, do what the Dr. tells you!
That’s a lot of metal in there.
