Hi Doctor, Before 3 months I had an accident in which my left ulna and radius bone got broken here in Melbourne they inserted 2 plates then after 1 month I was not able to move my wrist then they took CT scan and again they operated another surgery in which they insert a wire at my wrist and replaced the plate of my ulna bone now I am able to move my wrist hardly I do not know whether it is stiffness or what, my physiotherapist said it will take 3 months for the complete movements of my wrist so is it true?

Hello, after twice surgery with prolong immobilisation stiffness bound to occur, if your fracture fixed well and no joint problem you will get good range of motion over a time with physiotherapy.
