I had broken a bone in my hand about 6 weeks ago maybe a little longer. I just got my cast off but according to the x-ray it’s still a nice size break but healed enough to go with out the cast.
My hand is swollen where the break is and gripping stuff is still difficult. I can do some pulling, with relatively low weight. Some pullups and rows. Even light dead’s. But pushing? Forget it. I can’t stand the pain.
The break is in the 4rth metacarpal bone, or the bone under the pinky for the lay folks (I had t look it up). The break is clear through, it wasn’t just a small fracture.
Has any one broke a hand before? How long did it take to recover enough to train properly.
I can do legs, I can do cardio, but I am ready to get back in to it for real. I am going nuts with out it.
