    She came in joking about amputation at this point I’m all for it

    Last surgery I had was to debride the tendon and sheath as well as debride a tear of the scapholunate ligament and do general cleanup in my wrist which was filled with a milky substance

    I essentially undid that so hoping this helps, the rehab last time was torture

    Boy,I feel with you.
    I'm recovering from my third ankle surgery in September 2017.
    Supposedly returning to work March 5th,
    still a lot of nerve pain all around and unable to really walk unassisted,meaning without a cane or my Horse that keeps right next to me using his neck for balance.Hes my Therapy Horse,lol.
    I'm sometimes thinking about amputation because the extreme limitations and the constant pain.
    Working in the medical field where I either walk or stand and sit a little.
    Good healing vibes to ya.

    Absolute diagnosis and I’m waiting the surgery

    Had to start my fmla leave early as working even with cast was making it worse and my job wasn’t too accommodating

    My understanding is that at the worst I’ll lose some rotation of my wrist

    I’m hopeful it’ll help and I can live with rotation loss
