Good luck on your surgery. I did the same thing (didn't fall on ice, but while out hiking to see snow tripped and my foot got stuck) last year. I had surgery and had pins and a plate put in. No fun. Hopefully you don't need a cast and just have a brace that you can removed and exercise the wrist.

Ouch!  Never a good thing to fall, but a wrist injury(fracture in your case),can be a positive thing when it comes to falling on ice. Wrist injuries indicate to me you may have fell forward, which most of the time is the better way to fall, none of which are good.


Teaching beginners to ice skate I always tell them "you want to fall with your feet behind you, not in front of you". Sure, you may get hurt, but many are seriously hurt with "feet in front", because their head is the first thing to hit the surface. Plus, most of the time one cannot get any body part to help going backwards.


I can kinda relate to falling on ice quite well, but my falling is on the ice at the rink. But as a long time skater I know at some point I will fall, even the professional skaters fall. Did fall and fracture a rib at the restart of my skating. Then a broken nose along with a hairline fracture of my right wrist. No surgery, but did wear a splint for about 5 weeks.


Not minimizing your injury for sure, just rambling per usual for me. My story here is meant more as something kinda funny to me looking back about 18+ months ago, laughing at myself, so please understand. My humor is usually strange, my wife tells me that quite often.


@gloriajean  I sincerely wish you the best with your surgery and recovery. You care for everyone on these forums and I can see much of that being returned to you on this thread. You will be in my thoughts,

Oh no!  Gloria I am so sorry! 

Did you break your right or left wrist?  Is the hand you write with?  I will keep you in my prayers as you undergo surgery and then as you recover.  I pray you will have a speedy recovery.  I think of you and your family often and wish you nothing but the very best each and every day.  Go2girl.
