Getting hardware removed/tendon repair from 9 yr. old compound fracture. I had a wonderful repair of the compound fracture & skin graft of my left wrist with no residual problems, pain, etc. but just found out due to tendon passing over plate, it is shredded. I will be having surgery next week for hardware removal & hopefully surgeon will be able to graft a tendon from same area in my wrist to repair the torn tendon and my thumb will once again function properly. He did tell me it will have to be splinted. Has anyone reading this had a similar surgery. I am a 77 yr. old widow and plan to come back to my home after a day or so at my daughter's home.
