In patients after wrist surgery, recovery will take quite a long time, averaging about 6 weeks or more. The surgery performed also affects the recovery period and the care required.
Therefore, in patients who have recently undergone bone surgery, the doctor will usually provide treatment steps that you will do every week and every time you check; in the first 3-4 weeks, and it is recommended to limit movement, to prevent the risk of failure to connect broken bones. And if you have entered the treatment period at week 6 or more, at the time of control you may be advised to undergo medical rehabilitation treatment to restore the condition of your muscles and joints.
so that for the early weeks of treatment, you are only advised to move your finger or or other segment of your hand area outside the area of your operation or as recommended by your doctor.
Warm compresses on the arms, fingers, and outside the operating area can help smooth blood circulation and prevent joint and muscle stiffness.
Consumption of nutritious foods, protein, and high calcium foods will help your recovery and healing.
And if you need better information, you can discuss with your treating doctor regarding the treatment you can do regarding your recovery period.
Thus the information that we can convey, read also the healing of broken bones.
