I broke my dominant arm on Sunday, and I'd like some tips for how to cope with the recovery process.

I broke both bones in my forearm, had a plate installed, and I've been told that I'll be in a cast for 10 weeks. What can I do to lessen the pain and inconvenience aside from elevating the arm and taking pain meds? Can I take my sling into the shower? Any naturopathic treatments I can do?
Also, I make my living working on the computer and typing with my left hand isn't very speedy. Would I be able to use a software product like Dragon Naturally Speaking
with terminal software like PuTTY
