So let me get this straight. You were fencing, and you broke your thumb. So the first thing you thought to do was get on here and tell us about it? What happened to taking care of it, or seeing a doctor?
That happened to me once. Fracturing my thumb I mean, not by fencing though. I was wrestling some kid at school years ago, and he fell on top of me, on my right thumb. The thing is, he had a chain wrapped around his chest, and one of those links landed on it.
That thumb hurt for the next few years, on and off.
that sounds painful! it just goes to show you how much force is generated doing something like that. fencing? 'k, that is pretty interesting. i always see people doing that in spy movies or stories about Musketeers. i hope you feel better soon. we need our thumbs
