@Pippinwhite -- A lunate fracture just sounds like a football injury. I don't know that I've known anyone who had one who wasn't an athlete.
One of my buddies in college played basketball and got this fracture scrambling for the ball. He fell and another player stepped right on his hand. Crunch! He said he could hardly get to the bench because it hurt so much. He was basically crawling. He said he knew the meaning of "blinding pain" when that happened. He missed the rest of the season, too. He healed just fine, but he said he had a lot of pain for several days, even after he got the cast.
