Continued Recovery

Things are continuing to get better on the recovery from my crash early last month. First, I’ve not had the black splint on my left hand for about 4 days now, at all, and it’s not caused me any problems. I even managed to bash my thumb yesterday in a way that would previously have had significant pain, but it wasn’t sore at all. Therefore, I’m coming to the conclusion that the break is definitely on the way to being healed. I’m still taking it easy on the thumb, don’t get me wrong, and there are many, many things I can’t do with it still – indeed, there are only a few things I can do with it so far. But I can use my left hand much more than even a few days ago.

The left shoulder is also dramatically better. I hardly notice any pain at all, and there’s only a couple of things that cause discomfort in my day to day activities, so it’s almost back to normal. It’s amazing what a difference a couple of weeks can make, as back then, I still could hardly move it without incredibly pain.

The right wrist, well, there’s not a lot I can do about that, since it’s in plaster. Two weeks tomorrow, though, it should be coming off, at which point I will no doubt have muscle atrophy to deal with, but that’s better than a plaster cast.

Going back to the physio today re: the shoulder. I don’t think I need to keep going to see her about it, so will tell her I ain’t coming back. No doubt she will have different opinions.
