Hi, welcome to HCM
You had plaster for 2 month, which is sufficient time for bone healing. You should start doing exercise gradually, like for muscles of forearm. You must avoid weight lifting for at least 6 month till you feel complete recovery of power. Your had is already fixed, no need of special exercise.
Thnaking you.
