I had a surgery with a plate and screws 12 weeks ago, and physio for a month now, and still cannot make a full fist or bend the wrist backwards. Still have a lot of stiffness but am using the wrist more and more, and it is getting stronger.
As long as they are happy that the wrist is healing, it may take a while for the functionality and flexibility to return.
Have you had xrays at your follow up appointments? Did they book you for physio appointments?
