Well I'm 15 and i broke my wrist last friday cuz my friend knocked me off my bike. I went to the hospital and they put it back in place and put a splint on it. I asked how long it would take to heal and he said 6 weeks. I been drinking 5-6 glasses of milk, eating tons of fruits and veggies, fish and grilled chicken, and whole wheat bread. I have pretty much eliminated sugar cuz i heard it slows healing time. but if i continue on this diet, is there a possibility that it will heal in 5 weeks or maybe even 4?
I broken my wrist in december. I had 3 K-wires inserted and was in a cast for nearly 6 weeks. I now have tha cast removed, and has surgery to have the k wires removed. I will be starting physio next week - my question is how long before I can return to work, I am left handed and its my left wrist I broke. I wok in the food & beverage department in a hotel so I will be using my wrist constantly.
The more effort you put in your physical exercise and physiotherapy the faster you will recover. It can take couple of months if you follow all protocols properly before joining full time work. But before that go for a check X-ray and confirm your healing and proceed ahead.
