As for the injuries, they are all a result of skateboarding. I actively skated for a few years, the first break was when I was in middle school (1999), The second break was in high school (2001) and the latest was outside of high school (2007, by this time a skateboard was a mode of transportation and no longer a leisure activity). All three times, I broke both the Ulna and Radius. The first and third occasion were when I had the surgeries. With my first break they put small plates and screws, on the third occasion they removed the hardware and replaced them with longer plates and many more screws. As a result of these injuries I have have some pain and soreness in my right arm, and my wrist/forearm and noticeably crooked. My arm kind of bows outward and I probably have 75% of my range in wrist movement ( I cannot twist my arm to be palm up without pain and moving my elbow to an odd angle. My actual wrist joint always feels displaced and will pain me until I pop it (which only lasts for a short time and then I have to do it again). I've taken a few short breaks from guitar around the times of my injuries because it was difficult and painful to play. I play very often now and with minimal problems.Brett Burgoyne wrote: Over this 13 year span I have had a few injuries that have set me back and have had a hard time keeping up with the guitar. I broke my right arm 3 times and had 2 reparative surgeries (now have 2 plates and 11 screws in my wrist). Playing guitar has been an incredibly fun hobby for me and it was difficult each time to have to take breaks from my playing. Sometimes my injury causes pain when playing but I still keep at it because I love the guitar.
That only because my wife keeps me from doing anything stupid. She's the only person that I've ever been afraid of.
