It’s been a week since I saw the GP about my hands, and I’ll be honest the increased ibuprofen and ibuprofen gel hasn’t really made that much of a difference painwise. But maybe a week is too early to tell? So I will give it longer.
Wearing the splints help get things done but are cumbersome and irritating. But wearing the gloves at night are good, so that’s a win!!
Splints with weights are Interesting let’s say that. It’s hard while my hands are like this to actually hold weights, so in place of weights sometimes I use resistance bands instead.
Its not the weight itself I find difficult, more the grasp, it could be a pen at times and I simply can’t hold it. Frustrating to say the least.
So working the hip it is today, give the hands and shoulders a break. Though I’ve decided I’m staying away from any exercises that mean I have to lie on my operated side. It’s too dreadful for words.
- Hip Flexion ankle weight 15 reps x 2
- Hip abduction ankle weight 15 reps x 2
- Hip extension ankle weight 15 reps x 2
- Calf raises ankle weight 15 reps x 2
- Heel to butt ankle weight 15 reps x 2
- Mini squat 15 reps x 2
Not too much today, as joints are extremely lax this week. It’s the old Ehlers Danlos coming out to party, and by party I mean utter misery ball of pain.
