Broke your arm in an Accident? What to do?

You’re broken your arm, it’s in a cast and you are suddenly feeling very restricted. Things you normally took for granted will suddenly be formidable or impossible to do.

 

Here’s a few things you’ll likely have some problems doing:

– Getting things done quickly. A broken arm will slow you down doing most everything. Allow twice as much time as you usually take for anything.

-Doing anything without pain. Not likely to happen till 6 or 8 weeks go by.

-Showering and Dressing will be very difficult.

-Combing your hair

-Sleeping

– Scratching

-Working

 

Those are just a few of the thing’s you’ll need to deal with on a daily basis with a broken arm. Plan on 7-8 weeks until you start to function normally again.

 

So what can you do with a broken arm?

Stop Smoking. Smoking retards healing.

Use an electrical stimulator to advance healing. See(  http://orthopedics.about.com/od/castsfracturetreatments/p/electrical.htm)

I’d suggest catching up on movies or TV series you’ve always wanted to watch but didn’t have time for before.

Spend time with friends and people in your life you’ve neglected to spend time with.

Take a free course on www.Coursera.org, a wonderful site that can really change your life.
