Read more below to find out about how this should be treated (immediately)...
Thanks to a friend who worked at the hospital called ahead and I was able to get an x-ray, see an orthopedist, and get into the emergency room very quickly. While the wrist from the outside did not look too bad, I knew based on the mechanism of injury, level pain and the fact that I almost passed out - I was in trouble.
The orthopedist recommended they try to do a closed reduction immediately. To do this they put me on fentanyl and propofol to sedate me and put the bones back in normal alignment. I do not remember this part very well but it was totally painless. It took a pretty large team to get the job done and apparently I cried a little. That stuff works.
I was placed in a temporary cast and released after additional X-rays and the sedatives wore off. We set an appointment to return two days later for a surgery to stabilize the hand. See next post for more details.
Lessons Learned Today: If you have a serious mechanism of injury (high velocity or heavy weight) go to the Emergency Room. Do not wait!
Also if you are Crossfitter - WEAR YOUR OLY SHOES when approaching heavy weight (>50-75% of your max). I was wearing my Nano3s and honestly feel like it was a factor in losing my balance.
Here is a video of how Zach Krych was injured - I had a very similar mechanism of injury but luckily only one wrist for me.
