Re: Has anyone had their ulnar tfcc repaired
I had my TFCC repaired in July 2009 because my ulna bone was completely unstable. I don't remember being in any significant pain at all, although everyone's different. I was on morphine in the hospital and slept fine, then only had a slight ache and itchiness on the incision site once home - took regular painkillers to manage that. I stayed in hospital one night. They gave me a 'half-cast' up past my elbow in theatre and I kept that on for 8 weeks (well they changed it twice within that time to keep it fresh). I went back to work after just 2 weeks but only to do light duties. I'm a chemist and use my hands for most tasks, so I was given typing jobs etc.
Within 3 months I had returned to hockey training and played my first games back in october. Let me know if you have any more questions.
