Post 5 weeks now from surgery now. Getting some movement in it, but still weak as fck. Right where l should be as far as recovery goes. l go back friday and hope they let me start pt. l would cross my fingers (in hope) but l can’t do that either lol
Been a while since updating. It’s post 9 weeks this past thursday from the time of my surgery. Started PT a couple weeks ago and the therapist seems to be happy at this point with progress. l worked a full 3 days this week, so things seem to be getting back to normal. But 5 lbs is a little bit more than l can handle (mostly my wrist) right now. Only reason l know is because my female yorkie weighs that amount. Movement is good and can use the hand for most of the things with my job. No pain, just sore the next day from using it. Still is gonna be a while before l hop on a ski again. Hoping when Lundy’s has his gathering in August l will be well enough to ride.
Yep I have one similar it helped me out a lot with carpal tunnel .I think mine is a NSD Powerball.
If you get one make sure it has autostart, my first one had a string you had to wind and get it started, with autostart you just rotate the ball backwards and let it go. I posted a link up on PWCT about them and I guess it sold quite a few of them because they sent me an Autostart powerball for free.
Got out for the first time to ride since surgery (13 weeks). Felt great to be back on a ski again. Hand was good holding the grip, but not liking too much throttle, pulls on the wrist a bit much. l did wear a brace just to play it safe. Overall l feel good on the recovery and looking to finishing out the season. We can ride through December (most years) in NE Tenn so still have some time.
