Not Quite Six Million Dollar Man

Those that know me in person have heard me go on and on about my "broken" wrist. I use the quotes there because I actually shattered the base of the ulna. I had surgery to put a "plate" in my wrist, actually a T-bar with eight screws. All titanium. And no, it doesn't set off the metal detectors at the airport.

Here are pictures I took of the xrays. Click for biggerness.





You can see the shatter lines and a spur in the middle one. Cool, huh?

Kewl. I always though you were a cyborg.

I hate looking at xrays of the human body--they make me realize just how fragile we really are.
