June 2012, severe fracture distal radius, thru joint. Open reduction with plate, screws, pins. Jully 2012 pins removed and tendon release on top of hand due to removal of cast due to excriciating and unable to tolerate splint as well. April plate and screws removed due to neuropathy. Now, thumb and entire surrounding area numb and painful. Had arthroplasty on same hand in January, no problems. Any helpp appreciated. Along the same line, how long should arthroplasty on thumb last, (opposite) hand from above and does carpal tunnel release ever need to be redone. As you can see, hands falling apart ! Lastly, has anyone had replacement of finger joint and what has been outcome? Best regards to all..thanks.
