HI VINOD....AS YOUR DOCTOR SAID,YOU R SUFFERING FROM SCAPHOID FRACTURE AND THAT TOO IS AN YEAR OLD.I SUPPOSE YOUR FRACTURE HAS GONE INTO NON-UNION AND FOR THIS YOU HAVE TO UNDERGO SURGERY.SCAPHOID FRACTURES ARE VERY DIFFICULT FRACTURES TO TREAT AS THEY HAVE THE TENDENCY TO GO INTO NON-UNION AND AVASCULAR NECROSIS INVARIABLY. I WOULD SUGGEST,GET IT TREATED FROM ORTHOPAEDICS SURGEON WHO HAS EXPERTISE IN HAND SURGERY.HOPE TO SEE YOU SOON ON CRICKET PITCH.
