As you know I was in an accident a while back. Well after 7 weeks I finally got the cast off. My right wrist is swollen and slightly missaligned with very little strength. I start strength and range of motion therapy on friday. Will be going 2-3 times a week for 6 weeks. Next MD visit is in 4 weeks. My ortho surgeon is sending me to a hand and wrist specialist for a second opinion. He is saying that once I get done with therapy they may need to go back in and remove some of the ulna to bring my wrist back into the proper position and to relieve some of the pain and to keep from having to fuse the wrist in the future. Looks like I won't be riding for a while longer. Need to get thru the therapy and see if the additional surgery is necessary.BUT....YEA no freakin cast for now.

Glad to hear that things are some better for you. Sorry to hear that there is still pain involved. Stay off the scoot until no pain meds are needed. (Just say OK Pa/Pa) Maybe between your PT and Doctor you could incorpate the bike as therapy. How would that be for a prescription? God speed in your recovery.

That is wonderful news about your cast. I hope the physical therapy is enough to correct the alignment of your wrist. Please keep us posted!

Good on the cast removal. Now STAY with the PT regimen. It hurts but not as bad as what caused it.
Took me 2 years to get my thumb and little finger to reach each other but then they said it would never happen.

Been there and done that. Went for the second opinion had the surgery and the pain is gone ,it's not the same as before I crushed it and does not bend all the way back. But it's not fused and has been good for 5 years now. Good luck my friend.
