Plate and pin removal. How long till i can workout?

Recommended Posts

I have a plate and 7 screws in my radius.. Having them taken out Dec 7. How long till I can start pushing weights again. My doc is conservative and if it was up to him it would be 6 weeks. I was lifting light weights 2 weeks after original surgery. Don't want to loose to much muscle and fitness.

Thanks

I would recommend listening to your doctor 100%.

As frustrating as it may be, in my experience every time I tried to "do what I thought was best", it ended up being a set-back.

If you think you can workout sooner, go to a sports doctor (they are usually more agressive in letting you get back to it) and get their opinion.

I would just hate for you to go through all that you have, to take steps backwards! A few more weeks is well worth the time to come back 100%.

Have a great day!

Talked to doc about it Friday at preop appt. He said after 5 days and stitches removed I can hit the weights again. He said nothing real heavy for 3 weeks. Riding in 4 weeks.
