schaphoid screw

Hello, when I was young like 15 I had surgury and was put a screw in my right wrist due to a hairline fracture on my scaphoid.  It is uncomfortable sometimes and I have had problems sleeping.  I would like some advice from someone.  I know that the first surgery was traumatic and it was incredibly painful.  I don't like having something foreign in my body.  Sometimes it gets in the way and my wrist feels a little pain. The original doctor asked me if I wanted the scaphoid screw taken out - of course I said no, I was 15.  Since then I have been pushing myself physically and overdoing the exercise and now my wrist is painful sometimes, its stiff.  Im 27 and its been more then 10 years and now Im on all types on psychoactive medication.  I want a way out the natural way.  I would love some advice please.

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation or suggest a management plan. I would suggest consulting a physiotherapist and see if physiotherapy help in improvement of movement and function/ reducing symptoms. If you do not notice any change with physiotherapy I would suggest consulting an orthopedician for a detailed evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
