Injury Update, Wednesday, October 19, 2016

Had an appointment with my orthopedic surgeon for my six week followup. I am now free of my brace, but still on some severe activity restrictions. He said that such an injury can take 10 month to heal, and he does not want any kind of strengthening exercises at this point. He thinks that is six months away, and in the interim I am to work on range of motion and avoid any kind of pushing with that arm. I am optimistic that I will be able to shorten those time frames a bit, but still plan on playing it safe.

My range of motion is shown above, and it is just a bit more than 90 degrees at this point. Still can’t reach my face, and I look forward very much to the day that I can again feed myself with my right hand! That will be the next milestone of note.
