I first felt pain of my wrist around august 2008 after hurting it boxing i carried on with my usual job which is a bicklayer for a couple of months i then had it xrayed and found out i fractured my scaphoid and was told i would have an opperation on it. This took place in march 09 a pin was placed in the scaphoid an my wrist was casted for 6 weeks after removing the cast the bone had not healed so i wore a splint for 4 weeks an went back to the hospital were they told me i would have to have a bone graft because it had not healed.
I had the bone graft in october 2009 bone was took from the radius an put in the fracture along with a new blood vessel and a k-wire. the cast came off a week ago and i have to go back in 3 weeks for an xray im becoming very impatient and depressed.
I would like to know the chances of it healing.
And if it does how long will it be before i can go back to work as a bricklayer.
