The Shots And Therapy Didn't Work

Friday, April 05, 2019

After 2.5 months of treatment, I have come to the disappointing conclusion that the PT and steroid shots did work on my wrist. I had hoped to avoid surgery, but it looks like that will be the only option left. I will have an MRI on the wrist this coming week. The doctor and I will sit down on April 22nd and discuss what kind of surgery will be appropriate. If there isn't a any amount of damage, I may get away with a very simple procedure. It is actually done while the patient is awake! If there are tears in the tendons and/or ligaments, the surgery will be much more complex. Boo, hiss! I will cross that bridge when I come to it.
