If you recall I had the 3 lower bones removed last January (called a PRC) in my wrist. This recovery is one year for my grip to return (85%)-the physical Therapy is all about painful stretching of tendons as they are all ½ longer now that that my wrist is shorter. It takes time to shorten them back to normal length. I will loose about 30% mobility on wrist as well. I will add my choices were get my wrist fused to arm or this PRC (proximal row carpectomy). Neither sounded good but this one works best for a potter. Seems I injured right wrist 25-30 years ago and it all came to a head last summer/fall as the wrist came apart with pain and lack of mobility.
I’m not looking for sympathy just telling my story.
Now I’m slowing back into the studio after month’s away-
Clay work is good therapy for fingers and hand/wrist.
We shall see if I can glaze it all up-I really am lucky to have an assistant who can help out.
