Re: Ulnar shortening

Have you been icing your wrist since you hurt it again?

It might be time to get that arthrogram you had recommended. See what shows up.

My guess is that ulnar shortening surgery wouldn't relieve your pain by itself, but it would give you more room and allow for swelling to go down in your tfcc area. If you have a significant tear, it might need surgery.

If you swelled up a lot, do you think you exasperated your injury or gave yourself a new injury with your accident this weekend?
