Kaylee's Wrist Surgery

Kaylee had her wrist surgery today at SurgiCare of Manhattan.  She broke her growth plate back in
Kaylee in recovery after her surgery.
October of 2014 when she fell on an outstretched hand while playing basketball.  Was in a hard cast for 6 weeks and still complained of pain in her wrist and poor range of motion.  Doctor suggested physical therapy but after a few visits the pain only increased.  Finally in March of 2015 the doctor ordered an MRI which showed a TFCC tear and a ganglion cyst in her wrist.  We saw a doctor at Winthrop Orthopedics who is a hand surgeon he was such a jerk said nothing was wrong with her.  Finally found another hand surgeon who was the chief of hand surgery at Lennox Hill hospital in Manhattan and he said it needed to be cleaned and the cyst needed to come out.  All of which could be causing her pain.  On May 13th she is going to doctor to have her soft cast removed as well as her stitches.  Then she will be put in a splint for a few weeks while she heals followed by some physical therapy. I am hoping this surgery brings her some relief from the pain she was having.
