Wrist Fusion :(
I found out I had kienbocks disease about 10 years ago when I was 15. I was having a lot of pain and weakness in my wrist. I had radial shortening surgery to return more blood supply to my lunate bone. I saw a wrist specialist about a year after my surgery who said everything was looking good the surgery had been a success. I ignorantly thought that was the end of my ordeal. I have had pain off and on over the years when I overuse my wrist but nothing major. Recently i have had a Lil more pain and am losing strength in my wrist. So I went back to the Dr thinking hes just gunna tell me I have to take it easy on my wrist. Instead he told me my sugery ten years ago had not been a success my lunate bone has now collapsed and broken into pieces. I was told that my only option now is a total wrist fusion. I was shocked. I'm really scared I'm only 25 I still need my wrist to take care of kids and work. I'm hoping to talk to some people who have had a wrist fusion to see what my limitations will be and maybe people who have been giving other options that worked for them.
