    Hey guys I sprained my wrist 8 weeks ago hitting focus pads :(

    Anyways I just come to the conclusion that the sprain has gone but there is an airline fracture :(

    How much longer will this take to heal?

    I haven't been able to lift weights or do ma. To add insult to injury I have an army medical in 6 weeks :(

    Help me!

    Your name is very similar to a troll we had around here for a while, so people may ignore you initally :)

    I'd go to a professional and get his opinion and an Xray and/or MRI if thats what he recommends.
    Joint/ligament/tendon injuries can range greatly in nastiness (thats the official medical term...)
    They can hang around for months. It may be a hairline fracture but it may just be taking a long time to heal.

    tough I'm not changing my username. It is definitly a hairline fracture. It is realy starting to depress me now =(:-( >

    How long do you think it will take to heal?
    It doesn't hurt when I move it, only when I put pressure on it and then it doesn't hurt too much.

    I'm worried cause if I miss or fail the medical I won't get in the forces by September which will mean me loathing around until January :(

    I don't think anyone here has enough medical experience to give you a healing time, so keep that in mind.

    But since you asked...
    If it is a hairline fracture, 6 weeks is cutting it fine to be fully recovered and back at full strength.

    At least you can keep up cardio fitness in the meantime.

    I say get it checked out dude. Seriously.

    Army medical? You in the SAS Solid?

    I agree with Finger.. cardio.. Not much you can do just let it heal.

    Stop lifting, dude! You're just reinjuring the damn thing. Leave it completely alone for a few weeks to let it re-set and heal. Maybe some light massage around the area to stimulate blood flow, but nothing harder (save that technique for the bathroom! :P).

    And don't be a stubborn, macho freak when you get back into the gym...start small. Bones don't strengthen under duress the way muscle does.

    SAS no lol maybe in 6 years time.

    I'm going for sniper, driver and communications.

    Perhaps I should work on my running.

    Crimson's right, putting pressure into it will make things worse. Dude, just relax and apply that "chi" thing they teach you!
