Prescription of Pain

Went back to the doctor today.  The good news was that I don't have to wear a bandage anymore.  The bad news is that instead of prescribing me pain killers, he instructed me to do some painful physical therapy at home.  The therapy involves bending my wrist forward and backward at least ten times every hour that I am awake.  He specifically told me that I did not have to get up and do it in the middle of the night.  I think it was his way of making a joke, but I'm only mostly certain.

The reason for the therapy is to increase my range of motion.  Still, each time I do it, it hurts.  Not fun.
