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
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.
hi just reading your thread and hope each day you improve its very hard to give advice I would not vote in favour of internal fixation but I m an older woman and it didn't work for me just keep that hand moving and be carefull if they have told you to use ice as its not alwalys the best treatment liuzzie
