Hello Jeane, Thank you for the question.
To determine the right time so that you can return to your normal activities including driving a motorcycle, you need more information about the severity of the fracture you are experiencing, the type of surgery performed, your health condition, and your bone healing process. In general, you can wait until the bone healing process occurs optimally, which is up to 3 months. However, to make sure you are advised to check with an orthopedic specialist before you start your normal activities.
When a person has a broken bone, not only the bones are affected but the joints, muscles, and tissue around the broken bone will also be affected. After undergoing surgery, usually the size of the muscles around the broken bone can shrink because sufferers tend to be afraid to move the broken part despite undergoing surgery. As a result, the muscle will lose strength and to restore the strength of the muscles and bones, training is needed gradually so that when the bone reaches an optimal healing process, the surrounding muscles are also ready to return to normal activities. The process of healing bones and the return of muscle strength in each person will vary depending on the patient's health condition, nutritional intake, the process of rehabilitation / physical exercise, and others. Therefore, you should consult with your doctor again before you want to move normally. You are encouraged to do the exercises gradually to restore muscle and bone strength so that the healing process can take place smoothly and you can immediately resume normal activities. In addition, you are also advised to consume foods that are nutritionally balanced to help bone healing.
I hope this helps.
