Arthritis in fingers: May not seem significant before an injury to the wrist or forearm but often stiffness ensues even though the amount of arthritis on X-ray is the same exact amount inf the fingers before and after the injury to the wrist.

Had distal radius 813.42 surgery, then a external fixator on for a month after surgery. Now removed, but wrist & fingers are very stiff, Wrist won't flex up at all. Is this normal? How long to recover?
Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health and surgeries vary especially more involved ones.
BUT, stiffness is pretty much universal. If there's some deformity from the accident then range of motion might not ever return fully.
PHYSICAL THERAPY would generally be given for months after. ...Read more

Please see doctor: It is hard to tell without an exam whether what you are experiencing are muscle cramps or a less common condition called myotonia.

Depending on your exam, your doctor may also choose to perform an EMG test for your muscles. ...Read more

More testing: Stop having surgery without a very good reason.
