Has anyone had a Scaphoid excision four corner fusion in the wrist?

I was told I ruptured a wrist tendon and the only relief would be with a fusion or wrist replacement. The first two doctors told me not to consider either, the fusion would not last and there are other issues too. They also advised against a replacement, that was 6 years ago. I visited a different doctor today he stated a wrist fusion would be the answer, he stated it was a ligament issue, note the first doctors said tendon. An MRI was done 6 years ago, today only an x-ray which makes me wonder. This new doctor recommended a Four corner wrist fusion.
