I saw the surgeon today and he was very pleased.
I have six more physical therapy appointments and I'll see him in the beginning of January so I can begin another round of 30.
He was happy with my fingers and said that the numbness in my palm and thumb will take more time.
My range of motion is at 60 percent of normal.
The fractures in my wrist have improved but are not fully healed and I need to begin strengthening my hand and wrist.
He told me I'm over the hump and have made great improvement since my last visit.
I'm pretty sure I can feel that piece of metal just below my thumb but I'm trying very hard not to think about it.
Things I can do:
Write a couple of sentences.
Hook my bra.
Open a bottle.
Put on my make-up.
Things I cannot do:
Open a bag of chips.
Open a jar.
Use a fork.
Cut my food.
HANDLE TOUCHING WHAT I THINK IS A METAL THING IN MY WRIST.
I swear I can feel the metal in my right foot and it's been 8 years. It doesn't freak me out anymore.
Good luck from Minnesota
You are doing so well!
