Ask DN: How you manage your work when your arm is broke?

    Bummer to hear! I also broke my clavicle recently. Happened 4 weeks ago on the left side, so luckily it's not my dominant arm.

    It's possible that your break is worse than mine, but after initial swelling went away, I found myself fairly capable at using the mouse and keyboard once my hand was positioned in the right spot. It took some getting used to, using my other arm to move the broken one into place, but once it was stabilized on the desk surface, I didn't notice too much discomfort using a computer.

    Hopefully you'll be able to get back to work in a day or two!

      Hey Dennis, thank you for sharing! My break is ok, I can move my shoulder and my others arm's parts, it's just my clavicle who get damaged. So yes, being in the right position is a good solution, I'm experimenting with this and switching hand, will see in the future
