I broke my Humerus 5 weeks ago today and my lower arm and hand are still swollen :confused: Swollen like I have no wrist bone or knukles.

They don't hurt, but the swelling after 5 weeks seems a little long to me. The doctor said when the swelling goes down the bone is heeled :(

That almost sounds good. The swelling can also be exacerbated by the inactivity of your hand and stuff. Try excercising it, you know move it around a little more often.

Do little circles with your arm or something... No no not that direction, go the other way counter clockwise :p




I didnt even sleep in a Holiday Inn express last night :thumb:

The swelling started to go down to were I almost had knuckles, but then I started PT on Thursday and it went back up. I have stress ball I have been using to have movement in my hands.

If one more dork tells me to keep my hand above my head I'm going to smack them....Hello! My arm is broken!! :mumble:
