The Wrist
I had a little accident on the 12th of September 2009 in Germany, just across the Dutch border, which resulted in some HP2 damage. But more importantly some serious inconvenient damage to my left wrist.

I broke it in 4 places, was hospitalized in Rheine and a titanium plate was inserted only 4 hours after the event.

The following photo's further on in the article will show you how a broken wrist heals over time!

Update November 30: I've started climbing again and guess what?On my second day (yesterday) I already did a 6a. For those of you that don't know what a 6a is: try it smile

Update December 26 2009: Getting there!

    The plate is titanium and can stay in unless it starts to bother me. I opt for keeping it cause it increases my value plus I don't want another 3 month recovery...

    Does the plate stay in or are they going to go in and retrieve it at some point?
