That'll be rough using a WB...especially if it's a belt drive. But as with most things, if there's a will there's a way. At least you can walk. A broken ankle would be more problematic

Wrist and ankles are never the same after you break them, I had my Right ankle reconstructed December 7th.....Still very tight and not strong at all.....Simple advice, don't fool around with it..you may think....ahh it doesn't hurt to do this, but it may not set right and you'll be back at the doctors, they'll have to rebreak it $$$ (Or just stop by I'll hook you up nice).......DON'T FOOL Around with it!!!

I broke my radius and ulna totally in half 3 years ago during practice at a local dirtbike race. Maybe your break is not that severe but if you broke it bad, there is no way you are going to be able to do any work. It seems tempting to go out there and do what you can but you gotta be smart about the choices you make with your bones, especially somthing that is connected to one of your most valuable assets in your hand. I got a titanium plate and 7 screws and my wrist is back to being in good shape now. Only hurts when I do certain free weight lifts or when a crow bar slips and hits the exact spot the plate is, like what happened to me yesterday.

i used to work for a guy and broke my wrist on a faulty mower(2 1/2 yrs ago), to this day and still hurts and im still fighting him in court over it. i found it best to take it easy on that hand by either using a rider, hold a trimmer with a strap and so on.
