I broke my wrist badly 5 months ago requiring a plate & pins inserted.
I am continuing with all my physio appointments etc & coming along slowly.
However, bending my wrist backwards or forwards is a real struggle & painful. I appreciate its early days considering how bad the break was. My consultant told me its very rare they remove a plate from the wrist once its there & only in exceptional circumstances i.e. pain or no significant movement.
I dnt know what to do for the best....do I have the plate removed or persevere indefinately?
Has anybody experienced similar & had their plate removed? If so, what was the outcome & recovery for use of their wrist after removal?
I would really appreciate any advice.
