No Surgery?

I met the hand and wrist doctor today. I also got another set of x-rays. It looks like I may not need surgery afterall??? I am supposed to meet with the doctor again in a month. The pain is less and less and it sounds like the fracture will go away on its own. The TFCC is the only part of concern, but only time will tell. Let's hope for the best.

The doctor told me to take it easy...What's that?? I am planning on doing the half-ironman race in 12 days....then I will take it easy. OK...easier.

Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers!

Be careful. You are better off resting and letting it heal. It sucks to get a long term injury. I am talking out of experience.

Maybe he means, don't crash any more? I hope your half IM goes well and you are able to take some time off to let it heal completely. I would think running should be OK, though.

Good luck with the 1/2 iron. And then do take it easy for a little bit.

Yeah, I think the not crashing plan is a good one!

I hope you don't need it.
