Thanks for writing to us.
You have a drop wrist due to radial nerve affection in fracture of the humerus bone. This is a common complication of such fractures. Regular physiotherapy might help in regeneration of some of the nerve fibers and restoration of the function.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
