Radial nerve, early signs of recovery?

I broke my humera shaft 7 weeks ago and have radial palsy.

What are early signs of radial palsy recovery? (broken humerus,wrist drop).
My brachioradialis recently started working (i can flex my forearm when its rotated)

I'd be curious too. I have a classic case of "Saturday Night Palsy" and have wrist drop. It's only been two weeks but the last couple days I've had strange sensations -- is this a sign of recovery?

For the OT, I know your brachioradialis working is definitely a good sign. How do you check if they are exactly? Do you have sensation back in that part of the arm? Mine is still numb.
