After months of severe pain in my right wrist, splinting, 4 weeks in a cast and cortizone shot an MRI revealed 2 torn tendons in my right wrist that aren't healing (my family didn't believe my pain was "that bad" until the MRI came back- Grrrrrrrrrrr!). Having surgery on August 22nd for repair. Just wondering if anyone has had similar surgery and would share their experience and any advice on how to make my life easier while I am recovering. I am not a person who likes to sit still much or being limited and I got very, very agitated being in a cast for 4 weeks to rest the tendon. I probably used my wrist more then than I should have and am trying to find ways to avoid that after surgery. I am looking for the little tips no one thinks of until they are home and realize what they need.
Thanks in advance for any and all input.
