I broke my left hand a couple of days ago during a snowboard session in Austria. It doesn't seems so bad cause I can't see anything on the Xray scan that the doctor gave me.


The good news is that I can still type with my right hand... An maybe even take a picture or two.

    Nice alternative to the usual Hands, Claws and Paws shots!

    Yeah - I hope it is not too "spooky" compared to the other shots in the pool :-)

    it's great! but where exactly is the fracture? i can't find it either ;)
  • herby_fr 9y

    It's true - it's pretty invisible. I can tell you were it hurts though (see my notes).

    Actually, it's pretty easy to spot. One way we used to do it in the ER was to turn the X-Rays the other way. Where you stop seeing smooth edges... ;-)

    But this is digital. Just invert the colors. Flip the picture vertically. Look at the spots Irina has pain in.

    I didn't spot anything around the thumb joint, but that may just be sprain/strain related, or the picture lacks the resolution to show a small hairline...

    X-Rays are fun. :-D
