I broke my 5th metacarpal on June 20th. Have been wearing a cast since then and I am supposed to get it taken off next week. Just wondering if I will have to have physical therapy. How does the doc make this decision? I'm sure my hand and wrist will be weak. Or will he just recommend exercises? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
It's pretty sad when you have to reply to your own post. Guess nobody had any advice for me?? Well I got the cast off on Tuesday. Wrist is very weak and can't close hand into fist. He didn't say anything about physical therapy, just gave me a splint to wear for 2 weeks. Have no idea if I should exercise it or just leave it in the splint....guess nobody will reply to this one either
