Bike slid out from underneath me and my right wrist took pretty much the whole impact of the fall. End result - multiple fractures to the wrist, 2 plates, 12 screws and a second night at The Alfred (composing this from my hospital bed as we speak).
And to make matters worse, just spoke to the physio and I'm not allowed to even think about getting back on the bike for a minimum of six weeks.
That sucks! Hope the wrist heals well. As mentioned, make the most of it, it's great fun watching movies or bike races while riding on a trainer or on the gym bike.
