My wife's fracture is a spiral involving the prothesis. Present treatment is continue to wear brace/sling and see if arm will heal on its own. If not, future surgery will require plate and bone graft.
Hopoe she heals without plate. I have a friend who is getting her wrist plate removed (broken wrist fixed by local ortho surgeon)The plate was to large and her thumb tendon rubbed on it until failure -she is now going to my hand surgeon 300 miles away for the right fix
Good luck with the healing and lets all keep our fingers crossed for her
Thanks a lot Mark. My son shattered his wrist in a bicycle accident where a car pulled out in front of him. Wrist was fused eventually as everything was ruined. He was going to culinary school. He finished, but years later now he works as a prison guard.
