    has broke his arm. :rolleyes: :(

    Yep me. Caught my foot this morning and fell over off the raised part of my garden, not a great distance about 13 inches (33 centimetres) but enough to break my left arm. It's broken clean through up near the shoulder, unfortunately it can't be put in a plaster cast
    the break is too near the shoulder. All the the hospital could do for me is put my arm in a sling, now I have to rest it for five to six weeks and of course the horrific news is that it means I can't drive for that time, or at least most or some of it. :eek: :mad:

    The hospital described it "a common break for a person of that age". COMMON !!! there is nothing common about me, don't they realise who I am ? :D :D

    Welcome to my world, Derek. :sceptical:

    This happened to me about 8 years ago - it was how they discovered that I had osteoporosis :(

    I do hope that it heals quickly and that you are not in too much pain. Call in all the favours you know so you can be chauffeured everywhere. ():-)

    You common - never, Derek:D

    Just as well you are the fearless one, and can laugh about it - wish you well and hope the break heals quickly (and painlessly).

    Welcome to my world too Derek. Mine was in a traction slab for 3 weeks and then a traction sling. I was bruised down my back to my waist. I do feel for you. It’s quite debilitating. I hope you have some help with showering and around the house. I certainly hope you get better quickly. All that work and worry about your license and now this. You poor thing. I have to have prolia injections now for the rest of my life and I don’t have osteoporosis. Not sure if guys have to have them after a break. Look after yourself and watch where you put your feet. These things make us so aware of where we are going. {-(^^)-}
    PS don’t forget to do your exercises when you are able otherwise you will get frozen shoulder and that no fun either.
