    Hi Catty, I´m sorry to hear about your injury... how did it happen?

    If the only bone you broke was the radius then I believe surgery will help fix it. They will probably put a plate to secure all the pieces together.

    I understand your fears but you have to trust them... after all they`re the doctors. Even though it`s not easy to go through it, you´ll find your self playing your violin in no time smile

    Take care, and remember to keep me posted wink
