if you haven't seen my name on the "Do Not Admit" wall yet, you should go check that out
essentially 18 (10/04/93
2? 3? 4? I lost track.
Until recently, 10-14 hours a week
is factored into those 10 hours. But I do bellydance now =D
wait, is there WHERE I got the injury, or where the injury is located on my body?
Conditions of location:
oh I get it, it's an overuse injury, partially due to my stupidity, but open gym - dry, lots of music, lots of people, it was a little toasty in there
What you were doing / trying to do when injury occurred:
when I noticed the pain - round-off dub back; when I noticed the lump in my wrist - eating ravioli
Where any other people involved?
Not REALLY, Dan Kelley (MacLeod, Elric, dunno what his name is now) helped me bandage it, and I used Jake Chess's bandages.
Part of body - description of injury, rating of severity 1-10:
Left wrist, dorsal, between some carpals and some tendons (are the flexors numbered?) Pain rating? 6 in handstand or any position where my hand is flexed, 0 not in handstand
Did you see a doctor for diagnosis:
Two! An idiot doctor who told me my bones were fusing together, then a hand specialist orthopedic surgeon, but he had a very weak handshake which made me nervous but he sorta fixed the problem (painfully)
Did you get X-rays or MRI's:
nope... wasnt necessary
Picture of the injury:
Well, it's gone now, do I don't have one. I can post a picture of the aftermath later though
Could you / how could you have avoided the injury:
Maybe it could have been avoided. I exasporated it by not seeing a doctor when I first felt the pain. I waited until there was a giant solid bump sticking out of my wrist to do anything about it. And now there's a 50% chance I need surgery YAY!
Notes on the experience:
IF IT HURTS - SEE A DOCTOR! AND NOT A STUPID ONE WHO THINKS YOUR BONES ARE FUSING TOGETHER
cause it hurts a hell of a lot more having a solid jelly bubble sucked out of your hand by a needle without anything to numb/dull the pain. I was convulsing from pain -.-'
It's a normally benign thing, however because of the location, it was causing serious issues with pretty much all of my movement. The doctor didnt REALLY want to get rid of it but I was like LOOK DUDE, THIS JELLY SAC IS GETTING IN THE WAY OF MY LIFE
don't think because it's a jelly sac it's squishy; hard on the outside, jelly on the inside
As it turns out, the aspiration (needle removal) didn't work... at all... and I'll need REAL surgery. Time to learn right handed vaults!
