Re: wrist drop/radial nerve damage
Hi Kristie, no...I can not use right hand yet. Fingers won't extend, and now I can't even make a fist because of swelling and pain. My wrist is floppy. I had an EMG, and I have severe radial nerve damage. The neurologist said it should return in @ a year. The nerve pain is bad. I see an occupational therapist 2x a week, plus a physical therapist for my shoulder 2x a week. Have you been to a dr? I believe you will have use of your right hand, but it can take some time, depending on where your nerve damage began. Since mine started in the shoulder near my neck, it can take a year! I am a professional piano player and school counselor so this has really set me back. < edited > -kathy
