    Scaphoid non union

    Hello. I was wondering if anyone has had a scaphoid non union fracture in which a screw and vascular bone graft was used to repair it....was the surgery successful? How long was the recovery? Is your wrist mobility limited? I had the surgery just after Christmas, was casted for 10 weeks and it wasn't healing so they put me in a spilt, I have therapy to do three times a day and I have to use a bone stimulator. I am getting very discouraged because I see no improvement in my mobility and the bone stimulator seems to be increasing the pain. I know it's a long road to recovery with this injury but am just looking for someone else's experiences with it.
