Hello to everybody,
I am Dario 33 years old, 24 days ago I fell in descend riding my bike and got a compound fracture of distal radius and ulna.
After three days I have had a surgery, the surgeons fix my broken wrist setting up on it the titanium plates (ORIF) and splinting my wrist. After 2 weeks I replaced the cast with a support.
At the beginning I can only open and close the hand feeling more pain but now, after 3 weeks, I have improved and, for example, I can bring object and rotate a few the forearm with no pain at all, but I have almost zero grade of flexiblity in the wrist,
though when I take off the support I can't do nothing, I am very stuck and scared to bend my wrist.
I wanted to ask if can I already do any exercise (like to try to bend the wrist or rotate the forearm)or it's too early and it's better to wait the rx that I will have on 13 july?
Is it normal that without support I can't do anything after three weeks from surgery?
How long does it take for complete recovery?
Anyone have exeperienced with this kind of fracture?
P.S. English is not my first language
Thanks in advance
