collecting eggs is dangerous

Post by DavidBarkey »

I did not realize how dangerous collecting :52: :122: was until today . I am out collecting the :52: rent . I am almost done , reach in to grab one and POP goes my wrist . :cuss: that hurts . I have carpet tunnels in that wrist , but it has been good the last while . Hurt like a son of a gun , wrist and down into baby finger . :headbash: Guess I have to start wearing the brace again . :violin: :O Well that just cut my sex life in half for while . :109:
:30: :rofl: What a stupid thing to happen collecting eggs . Warning Collecting eggs is hazardous to your health . Stay safe guys, leave the egg collecting to trained professorial's .

Oh no, sorry to hear that Dave! My wife has that in both wrists, she tells me it's really painful. Take it easy, will you! :wave2:

Sorry to hear you tweaked your wrist - it's never fun regardless of how it happens. Hope you are feeling better soon - :wife: has had issues with her wrist since last fall - pulling a two wheel dolly that twisted on rough terrain at the property...

Geez Dave how big are these eggs your collecting? Are you sure your not raising ostriches or something? :rofl:


Seriously though I hope it heals quick for you. That seems to be the way it happens, when doing light work. I’ve had that happen to my back before, just move wrong and then the pain! :109:

Ya I have it mild in 1 wrist and moderate in the other . What ever that means . Not bad enough to require surgery but I am suppose to ware braces at night . But the are very uncomfortable and the :wife: doesn't like it when I roll over and wack her with them in the middle of the night . Hard plastic hurts . I was taking it easy , that is the most frustrating part . You know our hens lay some decent size eggs but ugg, it was just an egg .

A friend of mine had the carpal tunnel surgery recently. He had both done the same day and only had a band aid on each wrist. He said he was in no pain the day after the surgery when I saw him. :peace: Harry

As I get older and if it becomes too bad I will then opt. out for surgery . I have too heard great things , but was told mine is not bad enough yet , so got to ware the brace more for now .

Dave, I wish you a speedy recovery from this pain.

Interesting fact how sometimes just a tiny thing throws you in pain. A guy I work with has been in a lot of lower back pain from a cough. He's not old, in his late fifties, and was just recovering from a bad cold. One of my theories is that from time to time we have some sort of general inflammation in our bodies, and that's when small movements can lead to a lot of pain. I am not a medical doctor, but this is my theory. :violin:
