elise Posted December 20, 2004 Report Share Posted December 20, 2004 I've been attending my classes as normal during my time with various immobilization apparatus (apparatti?). In one respect since I can't grab the barre with my right hand I've been working on some stabilization, atleast on that side ;) But boy are pirouettes difficult with a big fiberglass arm slowing me down! My instructor keeps yelling, "bring that cast with you!" The good news is I haven't smacked anyone with it. Since the fractured bone is rotated 90 degrees from how it should be we decided to go with the bionic thumb implant which will take place tomorrow. (ok really they are just going to put a surgical pin in there after turning the bone back where it should be facing). If I am not mistaken after this surgery I will only wear a removable brace (knock on wood). I am so looking forward to how good it's going to feel to dance with two arms instead of an arm and a 2x4!
