I broke my wrist and had surgery (ulna osteotomy a.k.a. "ulna shortening") 4 years ago. I had a second surgery to have the plate removed. Along with the shortening I had a TFCC tear cleaned up, the TFCC tear was most likely from the ulna rubbing on the cartilage. Even though I had the surgery 4 years ago, I still have pain while doing anything weight bearing. I have been to a number of doctors who just look at the X-Rays and MRI report and tell me that everything looks fine.

It's NOT fine, I still have pain! It's like a pinching feeling when I am in say a push-up position. I got to the point where I just stopped going to doctors because I was not getting anywhere with them. Does anyone know what the heck could be causing my pain?
