Bummer. Some things take forever, or so it seems, to heal. Hang in there...

I'm very sorry to hear that. Have you sought medical advise, including physical therapy to re-build?

your hand/wrist injury raises an interesting thought in my mind, what if your out in the woods and suffer an injury that renders both hands useless (assume your lost, night is falling etc. and you can't just walk out)? think of the simple things you could not do like open your pack, dial a cell phone, make a fire/shelter etc. Similarly, one of my fears since I typically go out alone is to lose my eyesight (branch whack or something) -then you better have some luck on you side. Ever tried to setup a shelter blindfolded?

blushI haven't gone to the doctor. There's something wrong with where the palm bones connect to the wrist. It's okay for most stuff but if I put and weight on in the form of a pushup the wrist joint collapses. I've noticed problems in my other wrist now, too. Arthritis runs in my family and I'm scared it's the first signs of that.

The USMC has pullups on the PFT. The ability to "pull up" is much more useful than "pushing up". The person may want to pull himself up into the truck, carry (biceps) a load, pull food up into the tree with a rope, pull a buddy out of harms way, pull himself up a cliff, pull up his pack, pull himself up a dirt bank out of a creek (temp 28F)at 0300, climb a cargo net, etc.

Yup, but you gotta do what you gotta do. You can't fix you. I know, and I'm not even a doctor...

check out earlier parts of this thread where the "Armstrong Pullup" program is discussed. I started it at the same time as this pushup program and went from 2max pullups to 5 sets currently: 11,6,5,4,4

Once you are feeling better try doing a pushup on your fists this takes the pressure off of your wrists. I broke down and bought the perfect pushup handles at Dick's sporting goods and I haven't had any wrist problems since. I was skeptical, but they really did make a big difference.

Physician heal thy self? Not always practical.

Look at it this way. By going to see another doctor, you will be helping him/her retire student loan debt. That will help a like minded doctor equip themselves to survive.
