So I know this isn't the best place for a medical question! But I've been dealing with a wrist issue for the last 18 months, long story short I have been deemed "very interesting" by 2 doctors, 1 rheumatologist, and 2 orthopedic surgeons...

 

Apparently it's a pretty rare issue, blood flow is completely cutoff, bone is dead, not sure if it's collapsed.

 

The Google doesn't have much info, Utube has zero videos...

 

Anyone ever heard of it or treat it?

I'm no doctor, but I know there are a few on here who catch with no arms.

Avascular necrosis of the capitate is extremely rare, with only 48 cases reported in the literature up to 2012.1

Seems like you're in a fairly exclusive club. In spite of what people say, most like a little recognition for something. Well this is yours. Embrace the AVN of the Capitate.

Update

 

After my 3rd MRI last week the wrist surgeon decides he wants to do surgery finally! It only took 3 years literally.

 

There's a group of cartilage and tendon stuff torn. The TFCC? 

 

He's going to do an arthroscopy to get rid of the junk in the wrist joint.

 

If he sees bone on bone ie;  no cartilage, he's sending me for a FULL wrist replacement... at 30 years old.

 

If there's something to work with he's going to do a partial fusion.
