Hi all, I sustained a multi fragmentary wrist fracture in January and was lucky to escape having to have pins and plates. I have osteoporosis due to a parathyroid adenoma which I had an operation to remove 3 weeks ago. Since having the cast removed I have been attending a physiotherapy workshop at the hospital and doing exercises at home and although still stiff and swollen I am pleased with the progress I have made. However, the last two times I have been to hospital they have increased the strength of exercises and both times I have experienced greatly increased pain in my hand and can't do certain things with it I could do before. I've had to take paracetamol and ibruprofen today and I was off all painkillers before the physio session. I feel like I'm taking 1 step forward and 3 back - does anyone know if this is normal is it no gain without pain?
