fractured my wrist
yesterday i fell out of a chair while hanging draperies and the ER doctor said my wrist is fractured in two places and will need surgery. i have an appt. with an orthopedic dr. in the a.m.
how long does it take a fracture to heal after surgery? am i looking at months of not being able to use this hand? is it more painful after the surgery? will i have steel pins? is this done as outpatient surgery? i guess u can tell i've never had a fracture and this is very scary to me.
pecking this out one hand. thank goodness it wasn't my left hand as i'm lefthanded..
