6 week update

Heavy Metal

A quick update on my wrist.

It has been 6 weeks since my surgery, which means I had follow-up x-rays to make sure my bone is healing ok, and I got  the green light to ditch my brace. My x-rays came back fine, my bone is 2/3 of the way healed. Still no heavy lifting or snowboarding, my range of motion is still limited, but otherwise I am using my hand normally. I am still experiencing a little pain and swelling, but since I stopped wearing my brace on Thursday I have notice my range of motion improving more than it has in the last 6 weeks. This is really encouraging, since when they have measured my range in PT it hasn't seemed to improve that much. I have started adding weight to my PT which includes a 2 pound weight, a small hammer and putty. I always want to start singing "Hammer Time" when I start doing the exercises with the hammer.

Oh, and I also got the green light to go back to Yoga (modifying poses)!
