I got the cast off my broken left wrist last Wednesday so have now had a week of slowly, bit-by-bit, moving it as much as possible. This is not easy as it is very stiff & hurts a lot. Not just the wrist is like this, but the whole hand is too. In the morning I can hardly move the fingers so must work them as much as I can until they finally almost straighten out & become somewhat usable. I still can't move the wrist very much, but compared to last week... wow, it is coming along well. I've been thinking about taking some bone & muscle building supplements to speed the healing of all the damaged tissues, & have for the last 2 days been wrapping the wrist with chopped up comfrey leaves for overnight. It does seem to be helping somewhat so as long as I can get comfrey leaves I will continue doing this. I am determined to get the use of my hand back. I need both hands to continue being independent.
