Fused wrist

This is my first time on this message board, and I am typing with one hand-my non-dominant one at that. My doctor fused my wrist after he discovered that little had healed and the plate and screws were no longer effective. Prior, I had all three pins come out -the first all the way through the skin and I pulled it out myself.

My wrist was fused on 9/14. I originally broke both wrists in a motorscooter accident on 7/24, with surgery on 7/27. I am hoping someone can give me some idea on recovery time, and what I can and can't do with a fused wrist.
