The break itself wasn't the big issue. I broke the biggest bone in the center of my wrist clean through. But the big joint in the wrist under the thumb area was dislocated. It was sitting on top of my wrist. The plates and screws are to keep it from dislocating again. This caused partial numbness in the thumb and the fleshy area between thumb and wrist, so it was a struggle. But I'm back 90% to normal use now, so it's all good.
I'm a 56 year old woman that has about 60 or so pounds to lose but losing weight for me is extremely slow, so can use all the added support I can get. I'm just getting back into regular exercise after the all clear from breaking my wrist 6 weeks ago and having to get 3 plates and 8 screws in it. Still have to do the PT on it, but I can go full speed with what I need to do to get my weight down.
