I have had arthritis for about 17-18 years now and after a consultation with a doctor, he advised that I might need to have my wrists fused together when I decide to have hand surgery. My fingers on my hands are angled over a pretty good bit, but I can still use them. And I can still bend my wrists back and forth a substantial amount. It would kind of scare me to have my wrists fused together, but still hope I won't need it done. If anyone has had their wrists fused together, then has it caused you to loose a lot of your muscle tissue in your forearms. It seems imminent that it would happen since you can't bend your hands to exercise your forearms. I have already lost weight in my arms due to excessive inflammation in my wrists years ago, and what took a life time to build up, is now basically a few tendons and a little muscle. Damned arthritis! Thanks for any feed back. Kevin B.
