Wrist Pain Update

I went to the doctor and got an xray.

Bad news.

I'm not big boned.


Nothing is broken so he thinks it is tendonitis. Wrist brace 23.5/7 (I have to shower ya know.) for two weeks (He said that or a cast. I'll take the brace, tyvm.) then slowly start doing range of motion exercises. Two Aleve twice a day and Tylenol for pain. I have to wait 7-10 days after the pain is gone to start bowling again. :(

If it doesn't get better, orthopedic surgeon for further examination. Something could be torn.

He said where my pain is is not a usual place for wrist pain. Why am I not surprised?


  1. I'm just glad that you can at least try the rest method. I'm sorry you don't get to bowl for awhile, but really - your wrist is more important further in the future - like being able to flip off the driver who cut you off!
