Re: ulnar shortening osteotomy complication
I know everyone has different experience and pain levels BUT I need help. I had to have a external fixator on my right wrist March 08 from a falling backwards. My wrist looked a "S". My pain level wasn't bad after surgery. I was up and moving around the same day & went to Disney 2 weeks afterwards. Due to this my Unla is shorter then my radius. I have good movement but it hurts to lift, use a mouse/type after some time.
I have read everyones' comments but so unsure what to expect. I am scheduled to have this done on Sept 21st. I do work retail so I really dont have a "light duty". Some things I read, people said in above elbow cast, then lower cast, some for 1 week, others for weeks. Some also say out of work for a month then others for months.
Can anyone who has had this help?!?!?! And if anyone lives in NJ who did you go to?? Will I feel normal again...lifting, holding a phone, carry a baby, etc.??
