Hello Michael,
Please mention your age. Assuming that you have visited an orthopaedician, it sounds to me like a scaphoid non union or Preiser's disease.
If you have given up with rest, ice, compression bandaging and analgesics for 4-6 weeks, I would suggest an MRI of the wrist (if not done yet) to assess the vascularity of the proximal part of the bone. After confirming the diagnosis and assessing the severity of its involvement, a surgery i.e (a)revascularization procedure or (b)excision of the scaphoid and fusion of other wrist bones can be planned for.
Get back to me if you think my terms were too geeky.

Hi,

With an emerging era of stem cell which has brought ray of hope for patients suffering from AVN ,early diagnosis and intervention with stem cells prior to collapse of the femoral head is the key to a successful outcome of joint preserving procedures.

We use your own cultured Osteoblasts from the bone marrow to regenerate your hip joint .( using your own bone marrow we culture around 50 millions of Osteoblast cells over period of 4-5 weeks and inject it back to your hip joint.)


For any query, feel free to contact me .

My mother had also had similar problem, she saw an orthopedician. He said the bone has avascular necrosis and he did some operation, now she is fine

Hello,

Which bone of the wrist is it?

I don't think that medications will help.You could try steroid injections ,otherwse an operation to fuse the bones.

You can ask your doctor for pain killer tablets or injections for the pain. You just see the doctor and explain regrading your pain.
