I had a wrist fusion 7 weeks ago. I now have positive ulnar variance. my doctor suggested letting it fuse to the carpal bones on it's own. If I do that how difficult is it going to be to turn my palm facing up? I thought that was one of the reasons they don't fuse that bone during a wrist fusion. Also would it fuse to those bones by itself? Just how limited would the wrist be if it did fuse? Is this the best course of action to take?
