Re: Osteotomy for Positive Ulnar Variance
I'm still not sure what "average" is myself, even after the surgery.
For me, the biggest challenge was figuring out ways to do things with the cast. In some cases, I was able to adapt. For other things, I found people to help, changed what I was doing or just didn't do something until I got the cast off. It all depended on what it was.
If you are only having the ulnar osteotomy, I think it is basically the same as anyone else healing up from a plated broken bone.
I got tired of explaining to people what happened though. They just don't understand why I chose to let a doctor do that to me. I figured it was my business.
Let me know if you have any specific questions. I'll try to share what I've learned from my experiences.
Asthma, Allergies, severe LPR/GERD, Anemia, TMJD, Hearing Loss, Ulnar Impaction Syndrome, Shoulder Impingement--both shoulders, Benign Joint Hypermobility, possible Ehlers Danlos Syndrome
