End result is <50% flexibility and strength in that hand

Then my first surgeon ****ed up the first surgery when he was inserting the screw and shattered the bone into even smaller pieces which required him to put pins in instead (as you can see from the first pic they didn't stay in place) Had to fly to Rochester, Minnesota to finally get it fixed by the amazing doctors at the Mayo clinic that performed a surgery they invented in 2008. Had I broken my wrist 5 years earlier they would have removed the bone put a plate in my wrist and called it good(otherwise known as a salvage, doctor's words not mine)
TLDR-Alaskan doctor's are absolute **** and it took 18 months to fix a broken wrist

Dang. I had something similar although on a WAY smaller degree. And except it was my fault not a doctors. While I was at a lake I guess I cut a toe on a nail sticking up from a dock. I thought it was sprained or jammed so I ignored the pain all day. At the end I realized that my toe was dangling by skin and some like tendons or something. Anyways I just got it put back on with simple stitches. The doctor wouldn't let me cut it off :/

Can't imagine how it'd ruin a closer since the tight tolerance parts are self contained and the orings that touch the body are static.

I've got it now. I've been hunting down a leak on the non-fubar body for a while now. It really makes me want to just toss the fubar body in the trash and not even mess around with it. It's a real pain.
