Both of my sisters have broken their arms recently.
Both broke their right arms just above the wrist- one while bicycling and the other doing stair step aerobics (she says she’s got no rhythym- ha- it’s a joke- she’s a musician!).
Both accidents happened around the same time. Both sisters have internal pins and 5 inch plates and both are recovered from the initial injury. I didn’t know this, but you can leave the plates in or have them taken out. The musician says her plate doesn’t bother her much, but the bike sister was seeing a doc last week about having the plate removed because it has been bothering her quite a bit.
Then, today, she fell off her bike again and broke her arm above the plate.
Gah. Poor sister.
