    Ulnar shortening TFCC repair

    Im having ulnar shortening surgery and tfcc repair this Friday, Ive read a bunch of reviews but couldn't find anyone that played golf. Im an avid golfer which is probably what cause injury, defiantly when i noticed the pain. I have been putting surgery off because of fear of not coming back well from it. But over time it has become much worse and is effecting daily life so I need to have it done regardless. So please if there is anybody that has had this done and plays some type of sport would love to hear experience.
    Im healthy otherwise and 33 years old

    I'm not a golfer so I can't respond directly, but I was able to return to bowling.

    After surgery, with PT, I was struggling to regain the final amount of supination. It was extremely frustrating since I had full ROM before surgery. I ended up having the plate removed 9 months later. After that, I regained my ROM quickly and it has remained that way for a couple years now.

    Based upon where I am now, I would say that you could do everything you could pre-injury. I'd just be careful for a while until fully healed and not push healing. My wrist PT's said that with most injuries you push through the pain. With wrist healing, you don't. The pain is a sign of inflammation and there isn't much room in the wrist area for the inflammation. Slow and easy is good.

    Good luck with your surgery.
