Traumatic Arthritis

Hi Everyone! In February of 2014, I was in a bad bike accident and shattered my left wrist. After two botched surgeries with screws and plates put in, I went to another surgeon and had them removed and a partial fusion done. The other side of my wrist is giving me problems. I have been offered a few salvage operations to reduce pain. I could do nothing and have the arthritis continue, remove the top the ulna whic rubs on the very damaged fused radius, fuse the ulna to the radius and remove a portion of the ulna which would then be left freestanding, or do a full fusion and lose rotation mobility. Has anyone done these surgeries? Was it extremely limiting?
