4 corner wrist fusion

I had surgery 7 weeks ago on my left wrist.  I do my exercized 4-5 times a day.  get in the hot tub as often as I can and let the jets do their magic on my wrists.  this really helps to loosen things up.  My question is....will I ever be able to bend my wrist down?  even a little it something..I'm very active and I'm an animal control officer...still on light duty...I just got my cast off 2 weeks ago...

Hi there!

It may not be possible to bend the wrist as freely as before but physiotherapy and exercises would certainly help in getting the maximum possible range of motion.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
