Hello, I've never written a post before but I am so unsure what to do. I have RA have had it for 25 years. I've had my left elbow and my knuckles on my right hand replaced. I have been having terrible pain in my right wrist and have been seen by the surgeon. He has offered 2 options either a wrist replacement or a fusion. I don't want to have the fusion as it is almost entirely fused already but I am really quite frightened by the prospect of my wrist being replaced as you need your hand for everything. The surgeon has said it would help with pain but obviously there is never any guarantee. Has anyone had a wrist replacement and if so can you please tell me what you would advise? Many thanks
