What a nightmare the last 8 months have been and I tell you what I'm still none the wiser on what is actually going on with my left humerus! So on 8th April 2016 my friend took me for a day out to ride Segways around a field! It's was going great until I got knocked off and broke my left humerus in half!! It's now 8 months down the line and I'm getting pushed from different people at my local hospital! So basically cut a long story short the hospital have done X-ray after X-ray and also 2 x Ct scans which show that my humerus still isn't completely healed! Now I have seen about 8 different doctors since I had this injury and all of them are telling me different things!! Before my last CT scan the doctor said if there is not change we will have to operate! But get this I go and see a different one last Friday and he says, if your not in pain why should I have to operate?? I don't go by the scans I go by the patient! Well of course I understand that!! He also said to me that I should have been released from their care months ago if I wasn't in pain because scans and X-rays mean nothing if the patient is fit in themselves!! I have had no physio or anything! And the first doctor I saw was really impressed that I could move it given the scans still show it's very much broken!! I just really want to hear something which I going to help me out because I'm due to start a new job next week which I have had on hold since May - it's a very physical job and I just want to know if my arm can be strong enough!!! It seems like I'm going round in circles!! The doctor didn't really listen when I said it hurts now and again but when I'm not using it of course it's not hurting - it hasn't for MONTHS!!! Help anyone??
