Hi everyone.
I live in the uk,and shattered my right wrist in jan this year,just slipping up on some mud,got RSD as soon as the plaster went on and have had intenceive pheio to get my fingers and part of my wrist to work,they couldant get it to turn past halfway so went back to bone doc who sent me for an MRI scan, they say now that the ulna is pushing on the tissue and bones in wrist (oh I have a lump that sticks out ubove the bone little finger side) so they say they have to take a piece out of the ulna pin and plate it,and mybe a bit out of the one I broke as well to make them line up to where they should be.
has anyone had this done,did it work whot the recovery time,will the RSD come back very scared:confused: cowsrock:(

  • Yes, I had this surgery done. I had a plate and screws in my ulna for about 8 months. The surgery helped my ulna from popping out of place, but I still have pain while weight bearing. I had the surgery 4 years ago. As far as recovery goes, most of the swelling went down in the first week and the cast was an over the elbow one for 8 weeks. That was not fun! I had to do physical therapy for a few weeks after.
