possible TFCC tear
I am hoping someone can alleviate my fears.
Almost 4 weeks ago, I fell and injured my left wrist. No broken bones, but a suspected TFCC injury. My wrist has been splinted since the day after the injury. It was feeling better, but for the past week, my wrist has been swelling off and on and the pain has increased dramatically. My initial research on the net has not been very clear, but I am afraid my next step will be surgery, since it is getting worse instead of better.
I do go back to my doctor on Thursday for re evaluation, but I am trying to put my mind at ease.
Does anyone have any experience with this injury and symptoms?
