| | scapoid injury/TFCC tear
I fell three months ago, on a new job for which I was being trained. The intial injury was diagonised as a sprained wrist, but since then I have had an MRI, and further x-rays. I have had physical therapy for a month, and now a cortisone injection into my wrist. I got some relief from the pain, and felt like I was improving, but yesterday, at (my newly perscribed) continuance of therapy I found my improvement is not that good.
The tear in the TFCC is slight, the damage to the scaphoid vague, but the pain and lack of movemet are very real. I also broke the radius, but by the time that showed up, it was mostly "healed." The CAT scan, and first x-ray did not indicate a break.
I want to know if the shot, and the therapy will be enough, or if surgery looms on my horizon. Any thoughts.......Thanks.
