    The accident didn't involve weight lifting obviously, but the doc said I shouldn't seriously touch any weights for at least 6 months. The reason I say Ill have to use straps is just because my hand is retarded now. I've had my half cast off for about a week now and PT is going great, but I wont ever get my grip back just because some of those muscles were severed when the bone punched through. The muscles are sutured together still, but my therapist said there's always a chance it won't fully heal. And it doesn't really pertain to lifting, but I can't independently extend my middle finger.

    :dunno: It'll suck being away from the gym that long. Luckily muscles are one of the few cells that can regenerate after being completely severed. (That's how we build muscle in the first place. =) But still, after 6 months of atrophy I imagine my right hand's grip will be too far behind my where my deadlifts are to lift w/o straps. Without further ado...

    My forearms have always been a little skinny, but it's noticably atrophied from being in the hospital and the cast. This is where the longer break stuck through, the other one came on the other side but it's still covered in tape so you can't see anything anyways.

    Wow that sucks!! Best advice I can offer is to follow the advice of your physical therapy person. Do exactly what they say. The excercises may seem goofy or annoying but they will work. Perhaps invest in some grippers? Not sure if you'll be able to use them for a while though. Either way... Good Luck and get well!

    I didn't cry, but I screamed like a little bitch for the first few minutes until I realized it didn't hurt. The pain kicked in about 5 mins later, and it took a half hour for my friend to find me.

    :wavey: Thanks for all the kind words. :hs:

    Not really light, because it's hard to hold my arm out w/o hurting. But most of my hand is still numb because of the nerve damage.

    that sucks man. I had a friend crash his croch rocket and broke his arm with the bone coming out of the skin. He was able to fully recover, hopefully you will too.

    Most REALLY fun activities(for me) are high risk. I've broken both wrists, right ankle, 2 concussions, and other various injuries. Sure, ER visits, surgery, and physical therapy blows, but sometimes thats the price you pay.

    To the OP- I wish you a full and speedy recovery.
