Zoe,
It's a little unconventional but it worked for me years ago in the military after breaking my wrist and a couple fingers. Try exercising with a hand strengthener, there relatively cheap to buy, $15-20. Use one that allows you to work the individual fingers. Rock climbers use them to help strengthen their grip. Second, try wearing some wrist weights (lightweight) for short periods of time at home. The added weight along with normal activites will help strengthen your arm muscles and train your brain to get use to holding that added weight again. I definitely recommend speaking with a physician but if that's not an option try one or both activities.  Big thing to remember, don't overdo it, recovery is a process, and listen to your body. If it's telling you to stop, listen! Anyway, good luck in your recovery. :)
