Hi there,

I fractured my humerous into 8 pieces after a car accident in April. They couldnt fix it so I had a total shoulder replacement. As a result of the surgery my radial and ulner nerves were damaged. Basically my whole left arm wrist and hand was left in a paralyzed state, I couldnt move anything and I had total wrist drop. It all seemed so bad and I thought my arm wrist and hand would never work again. I was completly incapacitated. I am happy to report that now, 4 and a half months on most of the damage has come back. I can move my arm wrist and hand and I've managed to get my elbow almost straight again! (I was in a sling for 3 months). I achieved this through physio, and working hard on the excercises I was given to do at home. I can even drive again now, although I had to buy an automatic car as I still don't have enough strength in my hand to change gears. I've been told it may take up to a year and a half for the damage to fully come back, but I can do most things with what I have now. I hope my story gives others out there who are going through the same thing some hope. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask,

thanks.
