Fractured scaphoid non union surgery
HI i desperatly need some advice. Four months ago i was playing football (in goal) and i saved a shot which bent my wrist back and fractured my scaphoid bone in my left wrist. This fracture has only been diagnosed recently as the doctor said it was no broken. I have been told that the fracture is a non union and will not heal without surgery. If i have surgery how long till i can go back and play football (concidering i may have considerable force on my wrist) after the op. If i dont have the op is it likley that i am going to get athritus which will put an end to all sports. I really need advice as i am hping to be a PE teacher and i need as much function in my wrist as i can get. Please help!!!
