    Has anyone here had wrist surgery, and will comment on the outcome? I'm undergoing surgery in Nov. I have 2 options, and am trying to decide which to go with. Option 1, proximal row carpectomy, where they remove the scaphoid, lunate, and triquetral bones. Option 2, a 3-corner fusion, a modification of the better known 4-corner fusion technique, where I believe only the scaphoid bone is removed.

    Anyway, I'm curious about effect on use of controls. I'm right-handed, and it's my RH being operated on.

    TIA,
    ACE

    Can you lift a beer with your left hand? Failing that drink with a straw

    Consult your surgeon and doctors. Good luck with it. :)

    Actually Randy, I can. And I've been practicing all sorts of things with my left hand ... :Whistle:...

    My surgeon/I will make the final decision on the day of the surgery, we've discussed the options already. What I was thinking is that maybe within this vast riding community, someone has already gone thru this, or similar, and has direct experience to share. Maybe not ...
