Re: broken wrist
I've broken both of my wrists, and have had to use casts and braces. The best advice I can give you is to be patient. Don't drum on it until you don't have to wear a cast or a brace. I don't have any limited range of motion or anything, but I didn't wait when I broke my left wrist, and I still feel pain because of it.
