It's mostly okay. I can keep up a moderate level of typing, and do stuff like basic housecleaning - but I can't lean on anything with my hand flat against it (did that phrase make sense?) or carry anything not-light right-handed (half-full jug of milk, okay - pots and pans, not okay). I can *write*, though, so I can handle going slow on the other stuff.
I manage okay as long as I can write. The inability to write, whether with pen or computer, while this was at its worst drove me crazy.
