In brief: Yes

Once the metacarpal fractures are healed, intense hand therapy is typically necessary to regain flexibility back in the hand.
Assuming these fractures heal appropriately, most patients are able to write with minimal or no difficulties. However, it can be difficult to regain full flexibility back in the fingers so as to make a tight fist.
