Swelling after cast removal. What can I do?
I had my cast removed two weeks ago after I broke my wrist - my fingers are still quite swollen and I was wondering what everyone else’s experience was with swelling after cast removal and if is there anything I can do. Please help and suggest what can I do to reduce the swelling.
@munich Hello, this is normal. It may take 6 months to a year for the swelling to be completely gone. I'm four months past the break and I still can't get my wedding ring back on. I think elevating is a good idea, when I let it swing freely in the early weeks it made the swelling much worse. Now it doesn't seem to matter too much. Keep your fingers moving through - flex them several times a day - making a fist and then stretching them out. A compression glove may help too. Thanks!
