    Ok ladies and gents, plus Vampey.

    Just letting you know I won't be around much next week at all, it's been a hectic couple of days, I go into surgery on Tuesday to have the pin removed from my wrist. This is the first operation that will be needed, I will have to have a wrist fusion but hopefully not for a couple of years. So basically I am driving to Sydney on Monday, go for the operation on Tuesday and drive back home Wednesday. Most people it doesn't effect of course but if you don't see me online don't panic, I also haven't reinstalled XFire on my desktop since I did a recovery on that the other night. Anyway, have fun next week with out me around :D

    Oh not sure of the pin? Check the attached file.

    I'm obviously not an expert and your situation could be vastly different, but from what I've been told by other people is try and avoid getting the thing fused. Can be worse in the long-run.

    Best of luck for the op tho man, hope it all goes well for you and your wrist :).

    Sadly that is not an option CFods, it will have to be fused, I was trying to avoid it, was told if I rebroke it the wrist it would happen, but because there is so much damage in there and the gaps are large it will be done as to not cause more problems in the future, just hoping to get a few years out of it. So I think it might be touch and go once the pin is out though, and who knows, if something happens while I am under they may do more.

    Operation was a success, although they found ligament damage as well, this has been repaired but I have to wear the bandage for 2 weeks.. They have me on 3 Endone a day, only 5mg ones though, so no drooling.
