I fractured my humerus (badly) while abroad on holiday. I had surgery to fix it - 4 flexible nails from elbow to shoulder. Three months on and I'm still in a brace. I'm receiving excellent physio but the pain is only just starting to improve. However, what bothers me more is that my hand is still very swollen and very painful. I cannot close my fist. The fracture clinic told me this was normal and would improve in time, but this is really hindering my recovery, in particular my ability to drive and return to work. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? And how did you deal with it?!
