Other than being told to rest my arm, ice it and take Tylenol, the only other advice I got was really more of a directive. I was told specifically to not use my rotary cutter. Now the first two weeks I was not using my arm to do much as it hurt to write and I could not turn it to even type, so I used the hunt and peck method. Now I can do more but if I over do my arm aches, a lot. I have sewn most of the fabric I had cut, and so am now restricted to hand work, which I do enjoy but doing it for too long makes my arm ache. Knitting is currently out of the question.
It is a good thing we are going on vacation and I will not have access to my rotary cutter and sewing machine otherwise this restriction would be very difficult to enforce on myself as it is getting very old. I want to sew, but since I am out of cut fabric I cannot. I just hope that all this is worth the wait and when we return I hope I can cut away so I can sew to my hearts content.
In the future I think I will stick to riding the tandem, no breaks and no steering, that way I can avoid sand and gravel and flipping over.
