i fell backwards onto my right arm 2 weeks ago ice skating resulting in a mid shaft (thankfully clean ) fracture.
i know it's going to take some time to heal but I wanted to reach out and ask advise of anyone else whose had this injury
Sleep: I don't think I'm sleeping more than a couple of hours at a time - I cannot get comfortable and as I fell on ice I think I also have bruising to my coccyx which makes sitting uncomfortable.
cast seems to move and I am getting more of an aching than pain sensation. Is this normal ? This is my first even limb break .
dressing - I hate having to wear clothes over the cast but it's impossible to get a sleeveless top on over my cast unaided.
I'm finding the whole situation quite depressing especially being unable to shower!!- I'm used to being so independent and in control and find it hard relying in others.
If if anyone has any survival tips to make life more bareable I would be most grateful.
