Started physical therapy today. ZIP range of movement. Hurts to try to turn palm up..impossible to right now. Can't touch thumb to anything but forefinger and that's a strain but I still have to spin my wheels trying. Break was on the inside wrist bone..not the outside so work with my thumb is affected for now.
She gave me a size small edema glove..silky material with finger tips only sticking out..goes about 6 inches above wrist. The intense swelling indeed went down a bit but that is because of the gentle compression. Still have to wear the brace sleeping and driving as this glove gives no support. I take it off for therapy exercizes I do 5 times a day. 5 pm will start round 3 and I'll get 4 in. Tomorrow I'll time them better. Sure feels better than that flesh eating brace 7/24.
Oh, before I go..there are no breaks visible in my x-ray last blog. My break was a tiny fractured tip on the inside wrist bone. Those lines you see are fluid build up in the palm of my hand. Dr. was very pleased with this x-ray. ;-)
