My fiance broke his wrist March 18th. He had surgery and a plate and 7 screws were placed in his wrist. Hes been out of work since even though he provided a Dr's note stating he is able to return; his work will not allow him to retrn stating "there is no work for him to do". He does some manual labor and then also light labor and paperwork.
I spoke with the Attorney General for our state and they stated that whether an employee is injured ON or OFF the job, the employer MUST accomodate that person with work. Especially after having provided a Dr's note stating so.
He had a follow-up appointment today and got his cast taken off and his stitches taken out. He now ha just a brace that is removeable to shower etc. has sutures on this incision and was given exercises to do.
We are HOPING that THIS dr's note will allow him to go back to work. ::Cross fingers::
He needs to get back to work, we are now running off of just my income.
So, has anyone broken their wrist and had surgery and if so, what was the process of healing?
this happened almost a month ago,
had surgery 10 days ago.
has a follow up in 1 month just to make sure all is welland pretty much give him the ok for resuming regular lifting and use of his arm.
ANy input would be helpful i havent found too much on the internet of healing time with surgery.
& Thanks for letting me vent. lol :)
