| | Ulnar shortening
Has anyone out there had a successful ulnar shortening experience? Looking back, would you have the surgery again? Was it worth it?
Currently, I have a positive ulnar variance. In the last year, I've sprained my wrist 3 times. My orthopedic hand specialist is recommending ulnar shortening to help prevent future injuries and further long term problems. Right now, I have strength and movement in my wrist, but I'm having pain with gripping motions since my sprain 4 1/2 months ago still hasn't fully healed. I'm looking at arthroscopic surgery for that, but the doctor wants to do the shortening during the same surgery. I have to decide whether or not to have the procedure.
