Really weighing my options to see where to go from here. Hurt at work, kept going through about half the day until I couldn’t take the pain anymore. Went to ER and they said it was serious and sent me to an Ortho Surgeon. He says without surgery I’ll have about a 20% chance of playing again. (In the same way). The injury affected the pronation and supponation of my hand/wrist forearm. I suppose a change in technique would be absolutely necessary if it doesn’t heal properly. Surgery has its own set of risks and he said I WOULD loose mobility but it would be impossible to say how much will be lost without actually moving forward with the surgery. I do not play out much any more and have never relied on it as a source of income. I manage a few UPS stores, so income will be affected either way. Aside from God and my family, music is my life. It is one of the most pure connections I have ever had, and I do not remember a time I didn’t play. Started at 6 years old and I am now 30. Never would I have imagined life without that part of myself. In jest: 1.) No surgery with high chance I will not be able to play anymore. If I do it this way recovery (very unlikely) could be 100% 2.) Surgery with a definite loss of mobility (the extent of which will be unknown until they are done with the surgery) Worst thing of all is one of my more troublesome employees lied to the owner by saying I came in complaining of shoulder pains yesterday morning (before accident). I was literally just moving a roll of engineering bond paper (blueprints and wide format). It is quite heavy, around 70lbs but there is no discernible fall or something to show the immediate moment it happened. Other than hearing a pop when lifting the roll, and feeling my hand go numb and tingly, there wasn’t much to see on the cameras. I should have went home immediately but we just lost our best employee, and are quite short handed. I couldn’t leave my guys until some other stuff was taken care of. Now I am definitely regretting my decision. What would YOU do if you were in the same situation?
