I had the surgery done on Oct 2009 after almost a year thinking about it. The docs convinced me at the end to use the spider plate... anyhow, after almost 1/2 year after the surgery, I must say that I am quite satisfied with the result... definitely I am much better now than before... I have no pain, and my hand is getting stronger by the day. Of course it is not as before, but surely enough to carry on with a normal life. The only things I had to change was mostly regarding sports... I dont do sports anylonger that require a lot of my wrist (eg climbing, rowing, etc), i also wear a splint while doing other kinds of sports... I dont do any sports that press my wrist; I have noticed that this is no good. But I allow myself to do, very carefully and in a very limited manner (only certain movements; very limited weight) some weight lifting. I decided to do that since my arm with my problem wrist was getting too thin, and I was getting a bit asymmetric... Anyhow, the summary is that things are good; hopefully they stay that way or get better...
