Re: Scaphoid Surgery Recovery time

This is a very interesting and useful thread. I did not realize there were so many people suffering with this persistent injury.
I broke my schaphoid almost 10 years ago in high school playing football and had to have the non union surgery. Like many others, I did not realize that it was more than a sprained wrist when the pain persisted several months later. I opted for the pin/screws and bone graft about six months after the initial fracture.
The surgery worked well because the bones fused together properly, however I never fully regained full range of motion.
Now unfortunately it appears that my wrist has deteriorated, steadily causing me more and more regular pain. Its to the point where I can no longer do anything mildly strenuous, like playing golf, lifting weights or even tennis.
A couple years ago I had a second surgery to remove an excess pin.
The doctor thought that it being loose had something to do with the pain but it does not seem like that was the case because it has still gotten worse yet. I'm only 25 and the though of it being a debilitating injury for the rest of my life kind of is a blower.

I was wondering if anyone else had a similar condition ? And what if anything you did about it? The doctor said pretty much my only other option would be a cortisone shot.
