Boy am I lucky. 63 and never broke anything, still have all my fingers though I farm, lost most of my hair long ago, atttibutable to kids, I guess.
My wife slipped on ice, fell backwards and caught herself on her hands and broke both wrists las year. I got to play Mr. Mom and it's not fun.
I'm always very aware of where I am, what I'm doing and my footing. The older we get, the longer it takes to heal and sometimes you never heal. I lost 3 friends over the years to broken hips. All 3 never recovered and all 3 eventually died from complications.
Take your time, I'd not go back to work until I had to absolutely go back. The company I work for has short term disability for 6 months BTW.
I like the 'staple' look. Nice and straight, obviously the surgeon was a craftsman......
