    Darn! Almost had a 13 year streak of not breaking anything. Anyway, I was racing down the street on my scooter (I don't care if it's small, i'ts fun)
    And to avoid the bike I pulled into someones driveway. Hit a bump, my wrist was in excruciating pain. I go to the hospital, have x-rays, wait forever in the room, (robot chicken was on, so it wasn't that bad.) and find out I might have some break in my wrist because it feels tender or something. So now I have to wear a cast on my hand for ten days. This sucks for many reasons.

    1.) Being one handed, and LEFT handed is really, really, difficult.

    2.) I can't do anything with my TF's! I ws planning on getting Henkei Roddy or Ani Soundwave! Darn.

    I feel stupid cause this sorta my fault.

    Around 10 broken bones here. Over 20 breaks if you count the small ones and the repeats like fingers and toes. Don't feel bad man, you made it 13 years with nothing and only have a 10 day cast. I broke my drawing hand my freshman year of college (art school) in a fight. It was splinted for over a month, really sucked. I have broken 2 toes and a nose in muay Thai class in the last 4 months :lol

    Not counting fingers and toes its been about 18 years since I broke a real bone. Of course that was the only one I've ever broken.

    Is it specifically tender at the base of the thumb?

    Come back when you get a real break, dude. Ten days is nothing. I had a full leg cast for about three months and smaller casts for three more after I shattered my tib/fib.

    10 days may feel horrible but it is nothing. I had to spend my entire summer (1986), I was 7 years old, on my back with a full-fledged body cast because I had a spiral break on my femur.

    I also rode my horse in a competition with a broken pelvis without knowing it--my Bo Jackson injury.

    Yeah, I had two months in a cast due to a broken ankle. And I was a PE teacher when that happened. Fun.

    Why would having a temporary cast on for less than two weeks prevent you from getting these? Maybe it might prevent you from manipulating them for a while, but only for a few days.
