So 5 years after I snapped my radius and ulna clean in two, after a surgery which involved my bones being plated together with stainless steel and a total of 12 pins on each plate 6 months in a half cast up to my shoulder.
I have somehow managed to regain 100% ROM on my arm.
Don't ask me how, I don't really know. Probably due to doing weights for the past 2 years has given me a lot more ROM. That's what I'm going with.
Basically I can finally do (for the first time in my life) barbell curls.
I'm just glad I never let it become a reason to not do weight lifting like my doctors and so on said I shouldn't.
Anyway if anyone has had an injury like this or if in the future you do and you remember this thread and you still have the plates in like me , don't let what other people tell you stop you.
It works out in the end.
Roll on the never ending benefits of weight lifting!
