Thanks Steven, 2 questions:

What do I do for rehabbing?

What do you mean by eccentrics?

Someone out there must be able to give me an answer.

My dream job happens to be a physical one so any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Low Intensity/Level Laser Therapy works great on tendonitis-type issues:
Low Level Laser Treatment of Tendinopathy: A Systematic Review with Meta-analysis.

Eccentric exercise accumulated review (you might want to find/buy the whole paper or the studies used in it):
Chronic tendinopathy: effectiveness of eccentric exercise.

You might find it less expensive to invest in your own laser. This one is not intended for human use, but it works exactly the same, much like veterinary pharmaceuticals...

For rehabbing... I'd go with

1. rice bucket and the
2. eccentrics are usually light curls (help concentric with the other hand) and
3. wrist pushups

My wrists feel a lot better. I think a couple more weeks and they might be normal again! I cant wait until I can be a normal person again.

Ive been resting them, I even stopped doing pushups. Ive been doing light wrist curls, moving up in weight and reps. I started with one pound dumbells. That used to make my wrists hurt. When I was at Target I did some wrist curls with their colored dumbells up to 12 pounds. It didnt hurt.

Ive used:
Heat pads
Ice pads
Wrist stretches
Taking prescribed anti-inflammatories
Wearing wrist braces when I go to sleep and for some activities

When I stopped training before the injury I was shoulder pressing 120 for 3 sets of 5 reps.

They dont hurt when I drive, type, carry groceries, wash dishes, etc anymore.

*That is the last time I train like an idiot I learned my lesson. When something hurts, rest.

*Unless it is for the fire department or something.

Keep going slow and steady there. Biggest mistake people make is going back too fast of course.

Sounds good though glad you're working it out.
