Im looking for someone to talk to who has had both wrists fused. How do I do simple tasks like driving, tipping a lass to drink my coffee, stuff like that.

Hi!
Yes, post wrist fusion, range of motion is really compromised butt there is adequate pain relief. You can consult an occupational therapist to re-learn the way to perform all such activities which can be done easier if your wrists were mobile. With time you will be able to do most activities. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
