If your doing site work you may find that they will not let you on site of your carrying/or recovering from any illness/injury as there insurers probably won't cover them.

I think you will struggle to hold hawk etc/ with the way cast wraps around hand.

I broke my hand in the summer riding and had to take 5-6 weeks off, got insurance now.

I had 12 weeks off with wrist op, was troweling one though + was told cant work with a cast on for h+s reasons, that was for a company doing insurance work though but i dont fancy your chances on site. Had to do physio + be declared fit for work by dr before could go back. Wot op you got to have @Martin67?

Hope it all goes well for you mate, i didnt enjoy sitting round for 3 months, on the plus side learnt to wank + play darts with me left hand. [emoji106] i had a bone graft on me mine, had to cut a chunk of bone cut out me hip + put that in me wrist + screw through it all hold it together, havnt got the most flexible troweling hand you've ever seen can still do the job.
