Default Ulna shortening alternative

Injured my wrist a couple of years ago.The doc told me to rest avoid using it to much .I had surgery to clean the inflammation last year .

Now doc says its my ulna bone which is the problem its to long and rubbing against joint.. Which is constantly swelled up.And the best thing to do is have an operation to shorten the bone . Having part of my bone cut out scares me like mad so am looking for an alternative .If there is one.

The first thing I would do is try to get rid of the inflammation. Try Serrapeptase for about 2 months. Perhaps the swelling is the real issue and not the length of the bone. Makes me wonder if when removing the inflammation they removed tissues that keep the ulna from rubbing.
you can learn about serrapeptase at Serrapeptase Information and News

Good luck.

No had no problems with wrist befor. My doctor says my ulna bone is too long this is what is causing the problem.
Ive started taking serapeptase now .Im taking 3 twice a day. 60,000iu

Been taking this last 4 days so I'll see how i get on . Does anyone know any cheap places i can buy serapeptase? at the moment its £17 for 90.

When your unemployed due to injury it can work out alot of money .



Peace

You might look at iHerb.com - Vitamins, Supplements & Natural Health Products or Buy Discount Vitamins, Supplements, Low Carb and More at www.Vitacost.com
but I don't know if they ship over the pond.

Very interesting. i had the same issue a couple years ago. i had severe pain in my wrist. i had surgery to repair two torn ligaments. 6 months later, still hurting. i then got two MRIs and went to two other surgeons. One told me my Ulna was too long and recommended shortening it. i went to another surgeon with the same infomation and he suggested that they take out the three bones, the Lunate, Scaphoid and Triquetrum!. My first surgeon suggested that all i should do was to go back and do a scope, clean out what we can and see whats going on. That is of course what i did. He cleaned it up and my pain eventually went away. No problems today. I can even play tennis without much swelling or pain. I come to find out that the surgeon who recommended the Ulna shortnering was a Ulna shortening specialist in the area. So he apparenlty saw many wrist problems thorugh the bias of what he was comfortable treating. i guess the moral of the story is to be very careful, gets lots of opinions. a scope is a great thing to do because its not permanent and it allows the surgeon to see what is in there while they are cleaning it out. otherwise, no MRI is going show them everything that is going on.

good luck my friend

best

Andrew
