    Plaster cast

    Thanks all. Mrs Gundy, Got it looked at and they said it was fine. Well a nurse did. Fracture clinic wouldn’t see me and had me go to a walk in centre. Saw my GP the next day who was disgusted with them. Im trying to not use it for anything. I have attached a x Ray pic of the break. Quite sore tonight over the wrist. Mainly across the top. The whole top of the wrist. It swells a fair amount during the day and goes down at night. Sounds silly but I’m craving ice on it! But that won’t do much with a cast on it. Mum back to the fracture clinic to have the cast removed on 21st March so just hoping all is good with it as my job sort of depends on it when I tend to have to wrestle shit bags etc. but stressed about it. Only good thing is it will be off for my 40th birthday on 23rd March.

    Plaster cast

    So I slipped at home on 5th Feb at 5am which resulted in a dislocated and fractured left wrist. Had surgery the next day to have a plate and screws put in. Then had a half cast put on. Went back on Wednesday arvo just gone 21st Feb for a full cast to be put on. It’s a fibreglass one although I still can’t get it wet due to the surgery wound. Pain was manageable till I got the full cast on. Last night and today the pain has increased with nothing helping. Pain over the fracture site almost feels like someone has put a set of vice grips on my wrist. But the cast isn’t too tight. I actually think it’s too loose. I think I have up to about 10mm of movement where the wrist can move up and down. Pain is horrible. Should I go back to the fracture clinic first thing Monday morning and have looked at and possibly redone??? Pain is terrible and although it’s my weak hand due to work I need it to be functioning when it’s healrd with no issues or I will end up being non operational. Thoughts???? Thanks in advance. Thommo

    2017 Holiday

    Thanks for the replies all. Yeah we are definitely heading down the track of missing LA. For those that have been where else on the east coast would you recommend remembering we have a 14yo and 8yo.

    2017 Holiday

    So we have decided this year to go away for Xmas again. Started doing this couple of years ago. Went to Gold Coast and the Xmas just gone we went on a South Pacific cruise. Loved both of them. We are now thinking of doing a US holiday this year. Thinking Honolulu, LA, NYC & Orlando. Thoughts are to be in NYC for Xmas. 15yo is a huge Giants and Knicks fan so would love to get him to a game. 4 to 5 days. Orlando for Disney world and universal studios. 4 days. Honolulu cause the wife and I loved it there a few years ago and want the kids to go. 4 days LA for 3 or 4 days for Disneyland and universal. Am thinking LA might be a waste of time seeing as though we are doing Orlando. Thoughts??? Questions?? If we miss LA where else should we go for those days?? Which order would be best to do those cities in?? thommo

    Addictions. What do you have?

    HAD. Nurofen Plus (Codiene) After knee injury and 4 x surgeries. Injured in March 2011. Last surgery June 2015. Just couldn't stop myself even though I knew how bad it was. Took a bit to get through to me by my wife but don't touch the stuff now and haven't for bout 8 months. Feel much better for it. Just can't believe I was that bad. Still get very sore but I know the body and relationship with the wife is better for it.

    Long term parking Sydney for a cruise

    BC we are going with Royal Carribean as well. Decided we are going to stay in Newcastle the night before and train it down.
  9. We are going on a cruise at the end of the year. We have used park n fly before when we have been flying but have never done a cruise. Are there any places like that for cruising??
  10. That was me. Am back to see the surgeon next week with what looks like will be my 5th and then 6th knee surgery. Have had to cut back at work and change positions. I wish that was my backyard!! And yes I do still plan on paying it back.

    Knee warmer

    Thanks guys. Have a thermo skin and it just isn't good enough. A blanket won't help as I need it for when I walk around etc. I'm not giving up on still being able to do the job I'm doing now so really need something I can move around with. We have three cats and they all complain when I take them outside in the cold taped to my knee!!ð

    Knee warmer

    I'm chasing a battery powered knee warmer wrap. They make battery powered heated clothes now so does anybody know where I can get one for my knee. With the cold weather approaching/here in Canberra I'm looking for something I can wear at work. thommo

    Had PRP Injections today in my left knee!

    Hurt like an absolute bitch. The nurse in helping the doctor said my reaction was the worst he had seen. Mine wasn't done under any anestetic. And was $440 for one knee.

    MOVIE REVIEWS

    I saw Deadpool on the weekend. I really enjoyed it. Ryan Renolds is very good. His typical sense of humour comes out in the role. Well worth the money to go and see.

    Had PRP Injections today in my left knee!

    Hi Batman, Yeah I have tried syncisc. It's funny not many surgeons would recommend it. Not sure why. It was good for 6 months and then slowly decreased each injection. Got to the point of 2 months it would last. As for the PRP I've read heaps on how well it works on tendons and ligaments but can find very little about it helping cartilage. Plenty out there saying it doesn't help it. I have a second injection in 8 weeks time and see how it goes. I'm not expecting much to be honest.
