I'm depressed

23 replies 2 views Edited Dec 13, 2006
Ok so a while ago I broke my arm real bad from trying lacrosse for the first time. I had an obvious deformity in my arm which was extremely gross. I had to have metal plates surgically put on both of my forearm bones. All went fine and my doctor said it would be best to not get the plates removed as they won't cause a problem however he did say that with plates inside my arm would theoretically be more vulnerable to breaking more easily. I thought to myself "well it ain't nothing to worry about until next year"

A few months later...

From a decent fall I broke my arm again. It was obvious that if I didn't have metal plates my arm would not have broken from the fall. I had a different doctor this time that treated me. Luckily no surgery was needed this time as they were able to successfully snap my arm back together. I decided to discuss with my doctor of having surgery to get the plates removed but she claimed the bones would be even weaker if the plates were to be removed. Well my first doctor never said this and he claimed it would normally heal back to normal if the plates were to be removed. So I am now not clear as to what to do since the medical directory is not clear on whether removal would be more harmful in the end.

Now the important part is that I love to skate. I haven't skated in a while but I want to get back into it and it bothers me that I am vulerable to breaking my arm more easily. I just don't know what to do. I can't give up skating...I have been thinking that if I don't ever fall on my palms then my risk would be greatly reduced. Perhaps I should even consider wearing a special pad that directly proteccts the forearm as well.

No.

Did you have to get any metal fixation on your knee?

One: Skate as in skateboard? or... rollerblading?

I rollerblade.

Anyways damn bro that sucks, but over time it'll get stronger, and youll be able to skate again, Im sure.

But dont let it get you down bro.
