How long does a broken hand keep you out
I broke my hand in december. I had a cast for over 3 weeks and now I have a brace/soft cast over my hand. I still cant straighten my finger and it is still swollen. I know that even if I get an ok to take the brace off, I will still need time to get my strength and flexibility/full movement back.
How long will it be before I am comfortable again.
I miss my trails.

I have had 3 boxers fractures, which is in the bone on the outside of the hand, and it was about 2 months before I felt ok the really grip the bars again. 6-8 weeks has been the norm for any of my bones to heal, but of course it will take time to get the strength in that wrist back since it has been in a splint, so dont hop right on the bike and go jumping. The strength comes back surprisingly quick. Of course if you have damaged any tendons or ligaments you could be doing some serious time. I broke my tibia some years ago and made a big mess of my knee and was back on the bike after 2 operations and 9 months PT.
