Some of you may know i had a bad fall 7 weeks ago and according to those who know did not just break both wrists but smashed them. i am plated, pinned and wired. am typing with 1 finger. now lh is beginning to work but rh is useless and i desperately need the use of my rhand back again as i am still completely reliant upon oh for everything. i know it will hurt as r wrist hurts for everthing and no pain no gain - sorry to be moaning minnie.

You moan as much as you want Chris I had a collies sp fracture which was bad enough when it comes to being independant, tend to use left hand a lot more than I used to but I am right handed and cannot write with left one, it all gets very frustrating so moan away, no one on here will berate you. Hope you're soon back to full health .

Oh Chris

I know how you feel really i do

i fell 2 weeks ago landing on both outstretched hands

my left seems okay altho a little tender at times, but my right is still in plaster with a suspected scaphoid fracture - need a bone scan to confirm

so, seriously - you have my deepest empathy cos i know how hard it is to struggle with just one hand

deep breathing at the crucial moments should help the pain

(((hugs))) xxx

I smashed my right wrist and sympathise completely.

One tip is to do the exercises in a warm bath.................they do hurt, but it will be worth it eventually.


ChrisofWessex Report 17 Jun 2008 21:16

i have put my hands in basin of warm water and manipulated them. i expect it is because my rh gives so much pain and i try to do things - very minor - but cant - i dread tomorrow - bit like being in labour - you know it will get worse before it gets better. i have to get my independence back again. cannot even use my inhalers - oh has to do it. thanks each for encouragement - will let you know how it goes


Germaine Report 17 Jun 2008 21:32

Hi Chris lovely to see you back even if only with 1 finger.
I hope tomorrow goes well and doesn't hurt too much.
Take Care

Hope it goes ok for you Chris and hope it's not too painfull for you. I have had physio on my dodgy shoulders, but luckily for me, they used ultrasound and I didn't have much pain at all.

Good luck.

thank you sue - all help appreciated

I have a tall handsome young man as my physio (am sure g.dau would like him). He has reassured me I will regain use of my hands esp. my rh one. I thought my mishapen rh palm was due to surgery - not so appparently this is caused by swelling and is impeding my exercises so i have to use hot/cold compresses but think i shall also try the brown vinegar (never failed in past). Have lots more exercises to do and he tells me he expects it will take 8 -12 weeks. why oh why did i walk up that path 7 weeks ago?
