Went to orthopedic doctor yesterday, looks like I have TFCC tear in my left wrist.  My wrist had been hurting for a while, but got really bad on Sunday.  So out of commission fo a little bit, ugh.

Sorry to hear, Jerry. Hope it heals quickly.

@jsgolfer, forgive my asking about my own case, but I have been having pin from the base of my right pinky down to my wrist. Worse when I rotate wrist in or close my pinky toward my wrist. Are these familiar symptoms for you? If so, I will contact my ortho surgeon. Please accept my condolences and wishes for a speedy recovery. Best, -Marv

Two sentiments come to mind right away.  First, get well quick.  Second, don't push too hard, wait until you're properly healed.  Good luck, my friend.

Hey Marv,

That’s not the pain I had, it was right on the left side of the left wrist, right by the ulnar bone, and I did have some tingling in my pinky, but that has gone away.  I’m wearing a WristWidget right now which is helping a lot.

Thank you and yeah, I’m giving it some rest that is for sure.

I'm well aware of this injury. I believe I had it in both wrists. Mine eventually healed although not perfect they are decent. By the time I saw an ortho, he told me that I was at a point where they would consider it a "success." He also told me that often there are "successful" surgeries that don't result as good as I was at that time. @cipher had this surgery I believe and he has documented some of his experience on here as well as a few youtubers that have videos about their surgeries.

I am sorry to hear this Jerry.  My main issue was actually the ECU tear which is a fairly invasive surgery.  They found the TFCC was torn as well while they were operating and they fixed that as well.  It is a much less invasive procedure, so that is the good news.  Best wishes with everything.

Thank you. The splint I wear a lot helps but little. Best, -Marv
