My Broken wrist

On April 22,2002 I went to a public ice skate at the Fremont Iceoplex (now Sharks Ice). After the ice was resurfaced by the Zamboni, I slipped and fell backwards with my right arm held out to break my fall. My wrist became extremely sore and swollen. I went to Hayward Kaiser emergency room to discover that I had fractured my right distal radius and would need internal fixation. In plain terms I broke my wrist and needed a plate and screws to stabilize the bones.
