how bad is wrist pain after a full wrist fusion?

I have no cartilage left in either my right or left wrist. I wear a brace or splint on both wrists all the time. I don't have much pain unless I do too much in the kitchen. I am a writer and am learning to use Dragon. I have small, thin hands and wrists I am a little over 70, but I am a young, active 70-year-old. I was told that my options are full wrist fusion or else stay as I am, wearing braces or splints for the rest of my life. I am very afraid of pain – terrified of it. How bad and how long would the pain be after total fusion? What should I do?
