Re: Ulnar shortening

Hi all,

So I got a mri in january and it came back positive for tfcc tear. Was casted for six weeks. Now my pinky has been numb for a few weeks now, kinda consuring. Once the cast came off the pain came back, so they made a custom thumb spica brace to wear which is not comfortable what so ever. So im almost ready to say the cast was more comfortable. Sounds like I need surgery??? the dr also recommend surgery. He also said ill need ulnar shortneing, which I think is causing the pain, whats yall opinon?
