    I think I fractured my hand...

    It hurts like hell and I can't move it barely an inch since it starts hurting too much, the fall was lame too, I was dropping off a fairly easy 1.6mt drop flat to flat cement, but my rear wheel touched a bump before the drop and sent me nosediving towards the floor, I got up, seemingly fine and I almost cried in pain when I tried to pick up my bike lol. Right now my hand is only in bandages though.

    These are the kind of accidents one really hates, now I can't ride for who knows how long and I have my left hand immobilized, well, that sucks, I just hope I didn't really fracture it and it heals quickly so I can get back to riding.

    I can't express how frustrated I feel right now lol, just when I had the most time to ride this has to happen, man and to think I was almost about to try a 3 meter drop on the local trails.

    3 metre = 9 feet....thats a big drop for a rockhopper!

    It might not be broken, its hard to tell. If its no better in a few days, get an x-ray, its the only way to know.

    I messed up my hand last year. It's probably not the end of the world if it's broken. I felt like I fractured my 5th metacarpal (below the pinky), but it wasn't. The damn thing hurt to the core for 3-4 months. 6 months later it was still tender if I put pressure on the right spot. The doc said the bone was just badly bruised. Hope yours doesn't last that long. It's a bad feeling that such a seemingly little thing will set you back. Good luck.

    Whenever I hurt my right hand my sex life suffers abit .

    Also, I hate injuries like that. Something small but it puts you out for a long time.

    I broke my hand, and the doctor gave me a cast, but after 2 days I was sick of it and noticed my hand getting worse. So I took it off, and went with the icing twice a day, and 800mg of ibuprofen every 4 hours. It healed fine, but you should go get x-rays to make sure theres not any bones needing to be set.

    It took 3 weeks for my badly sprained thumb to heal up enough to go biking, but even now, almost 2.5 months later, it still hurts a bit. Things take time.
