Went to the hospital for an investigation of my right wrist under ultrasound yesterday. The plan was to do a steroid jab into the joint if inflammation was found but the radiologist wouldn't do it as he found that my ECU tendon, which I think controls bending of the wrist, was frayed and 'in distress' as he put it.
Has anyone else had this? Am worried that will mean my hand surgeon will want to do a darrach procedure to remove the eroded ulna head on the left side just like he did on the right side this time last year. I took weeks to recover from that and had a month of work. That was just because I had a rupture of the little finger extensor tendon - is the ECU more critical?
