Fracture of pin in wrist fusion

Just wondering if anyone has experienced a fracture in their pin in wrist fusion. I have had an xray taken of my wrist yesterday which shows this. The operation was done about ten years ago. I have been putting a lot of pressure on it as I pull or push using this hand to get up to a standing position. It has been pushed to one side and a lump has appeared and I not been able to use it for some time. Thanks.

  • Timmy, that sounds so painful. The pin must have backed out of the bone, are you going to have the pin removed?

    One of my screws tried to back out when I had my left wrist fused so I had to wear a brace for an extra 2 months. I can still feel the top of the screw through my skin but it doesn't hurt.
