Air Bag Wrist / ligament Injury

due to a car accident(not my fault) / AIR BAG wrist injury, xrays show torn ligament, middle of the wrist. It has been two months today (march 15)since the accident. The swelling and majority of pain have stopped but I still have limited motion and strength. The pain seems to be more of a carple tunnel type and my 3 and 4 finger-tips tingle if I write for any length of time. Weight or Excersize are out of the question right now, I miss doing pullups and pushups. I also Play the piano. For the first month I had to wear a brace, but for the second I have worn it less and less. I am dealing with limited down, back and side motion, and I avoid weight, pressure. I was recommended Against surgery by my doctor. Does anyone have any suggestion/history of WHEN I should expect to get and to what extent, range of motion back in my wrist? and WHEN I should start / and what type of stretch/relief/excersize and WHAT kinds? I know it's Only been two months, but I'm concerned about the long term. thanks.
