Wrist update

Saw the dr this morning and got good news. Extensive triquetral bone bruising. Takes 4-6 months to heal. No fractures. No cast, just a fancy new custom fitted brace and I take 2 Aleve morning and night ( or 4 ibuprofen three times a day) a month.
I got what I wanted- they saw what was wrong, they know how to fix it and it doesn't require surgery. If I'm very good about not using that wrist at all, this brace is all I will need. If I keep moving it she will put me in a cast. That's good motivation!
Cheers to the best news!

Ahh... so threatening to put you in a cast is all we need to get you to stop doing too much.
