I am enjoying riding my new Condor Fratello but the handle bars are not comfortable.

I have quite big hands and had a wee operation on my right wrist last year, with which I still have some difficulty - just at the hand side of the boney bit on the outside !

Now, when gathering advice before buying the Fratello, it was suggested that I might consider deep drop bars as the shallow ones put too much weight on the sore bit of my wrist when holding the ergo section.

I have Deda Newton Deep Drop bars fitted but they only come in 'Original' shape ie not anatomic/ergo. They are not comfy  :(

Does anyone know/ have experience of any handlebars which might suit me ? (deep drop, anatomic/ergo ?)  Bars like the Easton EA70 just aren't long enough on the ergo bit.

Your assistance/experience greatly appreciated.
