In September 2000 I had a wrist fusion done?

In September 2000 I had a wrist fusion done. Is it possible to reverse the procedure and get the mobility in my wrist back? Playing a guitar is very difficult and supporting myself when getting up from the floor is really hurting my fingers. I’m really afraid of causing damage to the fingers and bones of the hand if I fall. What options are available to me?

Age: 52
Medications: Omeprazole, ASA, Lisinopril

Unfortunately, it is normal not to regain 100% mobility after wrist fusion. In my opinion, the only valid option is to have a total joint replacement surgery. However it too may have some limitations to movements – such as the wrist – which you need to discuss with your surgeon.
