Physio Excercises

12noon 7th September

18 days after surgery Jess walked me through my exercise regime – to be repeated once an hour for 15 minutes. That’s intense, almost no room to do anything else!

  1. Lie forearm on a table. Keep the elbow still and roll forearm left then right as far as it will go.
  2. Move thumb across the palm then away from the palm – as far as it will go.
  3. Move each finger back as far as it will go and hold for 20 seconds.
  4. Curl all fingersĀ  into a grip position – squeeze a foam ball
  5. Move hand from wrist – backwards and forwards, side to side, as far as it will go.

Massage the skin around he scar with a good moisturizer to encourage healing and blood flow.

It feels like a ritual, casting a spell…

    Every hour? When do you sleep? How long do you have to do this for? I can’t wait for this to be over for you.

    At night, while I sleep the wrist seems to sieze-up loosing all the movement I’d managed to work in during the day. I did the above regime for a week then went back to work. While working I kept getting distracted from doing the physio, and glad of not hurting myself so often and so long. a
    A month later and I’m still pushing and pulling and still aching….

    It’s so boringly tiresome, a pain. I’d really like to get passed the pain.

    Hey Wendy! Do you have to sacrifice a chicken every time, too? Man, that’s a LOT of feathers. Indigo x
