I hurt my hand and tore all the ligaments in my hand. I had a TFCC tear an lt and a sl tear. After I had the first surgery and my wrist was still hurting.On the ulnar side.
I went to see another doctor. He did an xray and saw that the anchor holding the LT was coming out. So he repaired it fusing the bone. Now I know after having this done I would have very little range of motion but I figured the ulnar pain would go away. I feel there is not something right. It feels like bone is rubbing against bone. Like if my ulnar was rubbing against my carpel bones. When I mention this to my doctor he just kind of ignores it.
After doing some reasearch on the internet I have seen where alot of times after people have a tfcc repair they end up having ulnar shortening. Could this be my problem?
How does my doctor know if my tfcc repair "took" if there has been no more mri after it was repaired?
Any help would be of great HELP.
Hi Rhett, an xray will show if your bone on bone as mine did and now a decision must be made very soon to have a full wrist fusion or a joint replacement. i'll be looking to see how your doing. good luck Phill
