Kick me do !!!

I feel as if I have been kicked when I'm down. This awful disease just keeps on going. Today I had an appointment with an Orthopaedic Consultant to go over the report from an MRI I had recently. Well I have now been told I have KIENBOCK'd disease. The scan has shown that a bone just above my wrist has a compromised blood supply and is starting to die. The surgery is complicated apparently.

Has anybody heard of this x

  • Thank you. I did come across that in my search yesterday. It doesn't help when the RA affects my wrists as well x

  • It sounds very complex - from the diagnosis to the treatment. I'm sorry I have never heard of it and wish you the best in getting it taken care of
