broken wrist :(

  1. yup, broke my wrist the other night playing football (soccer)

    nice big clean break on the first night of the first holiday i've had from work in over a year

    anyway, anybody have any idea when it would be comfortable to play again? (it's my left wrist by the way)

    i'm gonna have the cast on for a month at least, and i'm assuming i'm not gonna be able to play until quite a while after that! i asked the doctor but he has no idea

    anybody had any experience in this? would just like a rough idea so i can plan to get back into gigs

    :( sad times

    i suppose it depends on what your playing and how agressive you are. when i broke my wrist when i was younger i had the cast off and played a game of rugby the next day and the doctor said it would be fine. :) playing bass with the cast on however will keep your fingers active which is good.
  3. yeah, although i can't even turn my hand round to get my fingers in the upright position :(

    not all doom and gloom, learning to play piano while it recovers :)

    i broke my middle, plucking hand, finger. it's week 5. i can't play at this time at all like i used to. i'm going nuts. no idea how or when i'll be able to play compared to how i used to. good luck on your wrist!

    overwhelmingly frustrated, jeramaya
