EEESH, I am looking at having tendon transfer surgery, which is the surgery to fix arthritis at the thumb. Mine are horribly painful and are losing function fast.....the guy doing mine does hand reconstruction but your story is giving me a scare.....hmmm.
I don't imagine any one wants to admit they screwed up cutting the radial nerve, but, geez, how do you cut the radial nerve!?!
I wonder if it is the radial nerve thing or if you developed reflex sympathetic dystrophy from all this.
I suppose if I asked you if you would do it again you would say no, so, now I have to think this thru....I dunno, are things better left alone? If I don't do something, I will have useless hands and a lot of pain....if I do something, do I end up with a situation like yours? I have that broken wrist sensation now, and have had no surgery. I DID break that wrist 10 years ago, and now and then it feels totally rebroken, but it isnt.....to think that feeling could present all the time is not comforting.
Thank you for sharing this and I do so hope this can be resolved for you.
