    My assumption is that you received a "boxer's" fracture, probably of the 5th metacarpal. In layman's terms, your pinky base knuckle broke off and bent into the hand. That is a VERY common break. I had one in 11th grade where I knocked out some kid up at open gym one night (he had it coming). I had to have to pins inserted as well.

    I had the cast on 6 weeks, but it takes MUCH longer than that to recover. I could only bend my pinky finger maybe 1/3 of the way, and didn't get full motion back for 6 months. It will be VERY tender for a long time. About 2 months after my cast was off, I was at an Indians game with a buddy and we hit a HR. My and my buddy high-fived each other. I accidentally used my healing hand, then we made contact. I almost passed out from the sharp pain. Be careful! You WILL have learned you lesson when it is all said and done!

    I smashed my finger last year between dumbells and boy did it take a LONG time to heal. I learned my lesson, which was to put the dumbells away when you are not using them. They belong on the rack, not under your bench. Duh.

    I got in a fight when I was a teenager and broke my hand, it was worth it, but much like you I had to wear a cast on my arm. It didn't stop me from fishing though, although I thought it would.

    Just switch the handle on your spinning reels if your right handed, its a little awkward reeling, but hey, it beats the alternative of not fishing at all!

    Hey, I seen guys with no arms can dress themselves and make breakfast. I seen guys with no legs climb mountains. Surely you can figger out how to cast with one arm, if you want to! :) I'm thinkin a molded-in rodholder on the cast, find someone handy with fiberglass.

    OUCH Harry, that is COLD! :eek:
  15. not hardly. paid him a visit. he said he's going to have the cast specially made.
  16. I kicked something once and broke two toes.
    Now I just holler and cuss.
    It doesn't help much -- especially in the blood pressure department -- but it don't hurt when I'm done.

    Oh, Harry......gheesh, I could make alot of jokes from that.

    Next time you decide to get mad, don't. Remember this, don't sweat the small stuff & it's all small stuff.
