She now has to wear a cast that will keep her wrist still for the next few weeks. Experts said it will probably take much longer before the queen can use her hand again without any symptoms.
Silvia from Sweden still has a long rehab phase ahead of her
Wrist fractures are more common in older people, according to the Swedish health service “Vårdguiden 1177”. The skeleton is more fragile than, for example, in children and the balance also deteriorates with age. If there is a break, as experts further described according to “svenskdam.se”, the treatment does not end with the patient being discharged from the hospital with the cast. A long rehab treatment follows, which Queen Silvia still has to do.
“It usually takes several months before the wrist feels normal again,” said the specialists. That would leave a feeling of weakness in the hand, but it would get better with time.
