Patient :Hi Doctor,
My name is jonathan. I am 21 years old.
recently, I've just been diagnosed with scaphoid fracture.
the doctor recommended me to go for screw fixation followed by bone grafting if needed.
what do you think about it? is it necessary?
The doctor said, I can keep wearing cast if i want, but it will take longer time to heal and it may not healed completely.
Thanks for your help.
Symptoms: There is no pain as long as i do not move my wrist
