    Ha! No, I don't actually wear a ring on that finger but I know my wedding ring from my left hand can....errrrr could....should fit on that finger too and that is kinda my guide as to how f'd up the finger is.

    I think what you need now is a good lawyer.

    Time to sue the gym!


    It's their fault, after all.

    Can anyone define the moral of this story?
    My wife continues to remind me of the moral of this story, usually followed by, "...you dumbass!"

    This just sealed it for me. If I had a legit medical reason for not wearing my wedding ring, I would go that route in a heartbeat. Having a crooked finger is no big deal. In fact, its probably a bonus. You could tell all sorts stories about how it got crooked.

    My brother hurt his finger playing WR in college, a coach made him go to the doctor to get an X-Ray. Doctor told my brother that the finger he hurt was fine, but that all the other fingers on his hand had been broken several times.

    With that, my guess is you’ll heal up fine with or without further attention.

    Good luck

    Distal radius fracture.

    Yee haw insurance company decided that a cast was good enough.

    Herp derp.

    They ended up costing themselves 260k.

    Had to get it rebroken, cadaver bone put on and screwed and braced for 3 more months.

    If they hadn't been cheap from Jump Street, it would have cost them 100k less.


    Plus, due to their f*ck up, I can only move my wrist 30% of what uncoils normally....so they had yo pay me an additional 90k.

    Real insurers of genius.....
