I'm sure everyone would love to see how small and wilted it becomes compared to the other one. Buy a dumbbell. As in 1. [/quote] I'm curious about that too. I'm a middle aged female and my arms aren't particularly buff, but I imagine I will have muscle-wasting that's apparent. I tend to heal well though. I will be working with a physical therapist in a few weeks too. That will probably help. [/quote] It will probably feel a little weak for up to a few months after, but don't worry- it's not permanent :) [/quote]
So, I was herding some squabbling cats apart, slipped on my hardwood floor and landed hard enough to break my arm a couple of days ago. Fortunately, it is not my dominant arm.
I have found tons of sites talking about the care of the cast, care of the break, itch and pain management- but few tips on doing day to day things.
I'm sure over tiime I will adapt to it but I thought perhaps some of you would have things you figured out during a similar injury that you might share.
Thank you in advance!
