Before!

so...

The surgeon didn't do anything yesterday except tell me his plan. i will go back weekly for xrays to see how its healing on its own. He will dtermine if i need surgery in the next few weeks. The surgery he described scared me to death. Rods, pins, plates, a huge incision....the pins would stick out.... I'm in so much pain amd so scared. He said ppl my age don't break bones like this....Well, I did. He said 8 weeks before I can go back to work

Im sorry your going through all of this. I can only imagine how painful it is! Yikes. Hope you feel better soon and it heals good on its own.

oh I'm so sorry this happened! I thought spiral fractures happened to babies whose arms had been twisted, not mothers trying to HELP their babies. Take care and keep us posted to the extent that you can.
Hugs.....

Bless your heart! That is the scariest looking xray I think I have ever seen in my whole life. I will pray you a speedy recovery. I wish I lived closer, I know your going to need some house work help.
