Re: How do i prove xrays of wrist wrong

I just ran across your thread. I have been all over this site looking for some discussion of de-fixations and here it is. First off, MissLiz, have you had your de-fixation yet? Am I correct in surmising that you live in the UK and that your health system is slowing this process? Hope your rehabilitation continues smoothly and you don't encounter any new complications. Good Luck!

I'm going for a second opinion tomorrow. With everything I read it seems like I should have had surgery. I know with the research I've done it says you can get back to your regular activities soon after surgery. Any thought?
hi sorry ive not replied hope you are doing better please let me know,

Re: How do i prove xrays of wrist wrong

Since I had my second opinion, I've had my cast removed and the 2nd doctor still can't believe that I didn't have surgery. My hand is like a balloon, can't move my wrist upward at all, can't move my fingers because they are so swollen and painful,developed osteopenia in my hand from being in a cast for 6 weeks. My hand turns a blotchy purple color still feels warm and cold. Confused,really wish I had surgery.is it too late for surgery? I feel like my hand is crippled now.Thank you

Re: How do i prove xrays of wrist wrong

What did the second doctor say about all of your symptoms other than you should have had surgery. Did he/she make any treatment recommendations at all?

Were either of your doctors orthopedic specialists in hands/wrists? If not, I'd seek a consultation from one that has that kind of training. That is what I had to do.

Re: How do i prove xrays of wrist wrong

My 2nd dr specializes in hands. All he really said was intense therapy.which i have been going 3 times aweek. For 3 weeks now. It kills me,very painful.although he did show me an xray from someone that had a plate and screws.i just feel as though it is going to be a very long road.i cant even pick up a washcloth. My fingers dont bend.
Thank you

Re: How do i prove xrays of wrist wrong

What kind of therapist are you seeing? My most recent one was a Certified Hand Therapist. I found his approach to be very different in treating my hand/wrist issues.

I was told by a couple therapists not to work through the pain for wrist issues because it perpetuates the inflammation.

Are you getting ultrasound and iontophoresis? They can help with inflammation.

I know that many people in the hand clinics I've gone to have had long slow roads. They did make progress over time though.
