After surgery, I have to recover for six weeks at home

Last month, I was working on a commercial boiler repair for work.

I was welding a new seam down the back side of the boiler. I was standing on the top of a ladder and I was reaching as high as possible. My partner was standing at the bottom of the ladder making sure it was stable. I was doing my best to stay balanced, but I got dizzy and fell. Even though my partner was at the bottom of the ladder, he couldn’t do anything to help when I fell. I landed on my right arm and I heard a couple of the bones break. It sounded like they shattered. My partner took me to the emergency room and both of us left a commercial boiler repair at once. I’ve never been dizzy at work before, but the doctor at the emergency room said it was probably due to looking up for a long period of time. My blood pressure was fine and my sugar levels were perfect. The doctor ordered a couple of x-rays on my arm and it was broken in several places. It was too swollen to put in a cast, and the doctor told me that I will need surgery. After the surgery, I will be forced to stop commercial boiler repairs for at least six weeks. I have to stay at home and recover. I’m not looking forward to 6 weeks of boredom, but I won’t be able to work without the use of my right arm. I still feel foolish for losing my balance and causing all of this mess.
