Need some advice/help from the doctors in the house.
I hurt my wrist playing hockey (don't remember a specific hit/slash) about 3
1/2 weeks ago. Pain and no strength in the inside wrist (not swollen from
the outside at least). Went to see a doctor and he said it was tendonitis
(prescribed naprasin) of a tendon that hooks around a bone on the inside
I'm going on a planned trip next week. The wrist has felt better. (good
range of motion but still slightly tender around the area) so I figured I
should try to see if I can hit balls. I had some pain at impact (especially
if not hit flush and also worse with longer clubs) but not as bad as when
first hurt. I've done my google searches and have been scared myself by the
idea of breaking the "hook of hamate" in my wrist.
Could I have fractured it? And can I do severe damage if I try to play on
it? Would a brace help (if so, what kind)? Thanks.
I'm leaving soon and won't have time to see a doctor.
Would appreciate any help. Thanks.
