Injury Question

I fractured my wrist playing roller hockey. How long could I expect to be out? I have a hard cast and my house league starts in about a week and lasts about 6 weeks. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Uhm, well I think a break is about 4 weeks depending on where it is and how bad. But I've played while it was still broken with a splint not a cast. If I'm not wrong fractures take longer to heal? So don't count on it but deffinatly wait for somebody who has had a fracture to respond.

I broke both forearm bones and dislocated my hand right off of them. I was not playing hockey at this time. I think I was in the cast for a month? Can't remember. Anyway I was in the gym w/my cast as per doctor's approval, doing light stupid machine stuff just to remain active. And of course, legs where I could. When the cast came off, I don't think I was even beginning to stress the wrist for 2-3 weeks afterward. I wanted to give the wrist some time being 'free' before giving it some work to do after such a layoff.

I wouldn't suggest rushing to play this 6-week league but I know others who have done such things. Then again, my injury was worse than theirs and they aren't the brightest people I know either.

Top or bottom hand? Did you go to a doctor? Get a cast?

Well I honestly posted this while I was in the hospital waiting for the doctor. Right now I have a splint and I am getting a cast in a few days. I fractured my ulna. Its about 1 cm long.

Well I'd ask the doctor then. If it's top hand, I doubt you'd be able to shoot or do anything much with the stick for a few weeks. Bottom hand might heal a bit quicker. But better to miss a few weeks of hockey than to aggravate it IMO.

I recommend a teaspoon of liquid calcium everyday until it's healed, helped me alot.

It should help since bone and teeth health is related to calcium but I would double check with the doctor or pharmacist to make sure it doesn't interfere with anything.

I was out 4 weeks with a broken wrist and it didn't feel %100 for a few weeks after that. I still took the calcium everyday though.
