Broken Bones And Hand Muscles Are Not As Great?

Good night Gilang, thank you for asking on HealthReplies.com.
The hands that appear smaller than the other hand are generally caused by a decrease in mass of the muscles (muscle atrophy) that are in the smaller hand. This decrease in muscle mass is generally caused by two conditions: the muscle is rarely used or there is nerve damage that is responsible for muscle movement.
Whether or not the muscle mass can return to normal, it depends on the cause of the decrease in mass when you have an injury. If caused by the use of muscle that is rarely during the healing period of your injury, then by eating foods that are more nutritious and accompanied by muscle training, muscle mass can return to normal.
However, if it is caused by nerve damage to the nerves due to a fracture to the bone or joint displacement of the nerve, then the muscle mass will generally not experience additional mass gain, and cannot be supplemented using improved nutrition or muscle training.
Therefore, you should check the condition of your hand to the orthopedic doctor for re-evaluation, whether there is damage to the nerves of the muscles or not and whether there is still damage to the bones of your hand that have not improved after the injury and sequencing that you do 7 last year. Avoid doing these exercises until there is a clear recommendation from your doctor whether your current condition is allowed or not to do weight lifting.
For now keep trying to use the smaller hand muscles as often as possible and in accordance with its strength, do not be forced to do strenuous activities or beyond your ability.
I hope this helps.
