@gloriajean   I'm glad your surgery went well! I had several bones broken in my wrist and plates put in. I did the therapy afterward and at home. It's as good as new! I'm sure yours will be also!  💐🌺🌷🌹

Thanx Cakers!

DAY 2 - pain now, maybe worse that they put in a metal plate and 6 screws. Icing often and taking Norco every 5 hours. anyone know if having a plate in takes longer to heal and more painful? next week is follow up.

Hi @gloriajean,

 

Glad to hear your surgery went well. Although I've had many broken bones, the only metal I have in my body is a Greenfield Vena Cava Filter whick is Titanium, to prevent PE(lung blood clots), and Titanium clips which were/are used as clips to prevent my Right Colon from bleeding.

 

The bones I broke, like ribs/calcaneus/toes, were the types that have to heal on their own. Not much can be done with the ones I have had so far. Ribs were the ones that took the longest to heal, and just breathing deeply was pretty painful. Broke 2 at the same time and it took over 6 months for them to heal, and there was no such thing as a comfortable position.

 

Can't take any pain meds but Tylenol because of my bleeding Colon issues.

 

 

Hopefully the pain subsides some for you and your rehab gets your wrist function as normal as soon as possible.

 

My very best to you,

Thanks John. When I posted last I was concerned, but the next morning I was able to be off narcotics already and only take Tylonel as needed.
