I fractured my scaphoid 4 mounths ago however due to the fact that the doctor said it was not broken just sprained it has only just been diagnosed. I play soccer (goalie) to a fairly high standard and i participate in a lot of sport which involves the use of my wrist. I have not had any treatment for my wrist as i have been told the fracture is a non union, and can only be fixed with surgery. Is there anyone who has had surgery on a non union scaphoid fracture and whats the prognosis, will i be able to play at the same level. Secondly if i dont have the surgery i am aware that i will get arthritus in the wrist, do any one know how long this will take to become symptomatic.
