I was then told that the best approach is not to cast it, but to do a sort of immediate rehabilitation. We don't cast it, and I go back to (try not to laugh) as normal of a life as possible. I'm not allowed to push pull or carry anything over one pound. Which means no work for me. Oh AND I have to exercise it a couple times a day. Argh talk about pain!
On top of the arm not being casted I'm also not supposed to take the strong pain killers that were necessary for my minimal comfort that I got out of them. I was having an extremely difficult time sleeping even with the higher dose of vicatin. How on Earth am I supposed to function without it?? I don't think I can. Luckily I have a few doses left so maybe I can save them for the night time.
Typing with one hand has become quit a peculiar feat for me. I am actually surprised at how few mistakes I've had. Anywho. That seems to be the only thing I can do right now. I had to get my hair washed at a hair salon yesterday cuz Having Jon do it was just too painful. Showering is out of the question. I have to hold my arm up when it isn't wrapped, so I can't exactly hold my arm and bathe myself. I'm just sticking with the sink bath for now.
