Cool thumb surgery

I have been trying to research about my husband's thumb surgery. He had joint replacement and apparently the new plastic joint has shattered and we are not sure about anything pertaining to this. He has bad hearing and I did not go to the appt with him, so all I know is that they are sending him for physicals etc. for surgery. Hoping to find others that can enlighten us a little. Don't evn know where to look! Can anyone help? Thanks!

Re: thumb surgery

If his surgery involved a prosthesis and it failed (shattered) then likely he will require another surgery. You might consider a second opinion and with a doc who uses a different procedure and definitely have someone accompany him if he has a hearing problem.

All the best,
