Two options to fix a broken wrist, need advice
Ok so I've got a scaphoid fracture and I need to figure out which route I want to go with fixing this. My two options are:
1. Being in a cast for three months. College starts back up in mid August and I just started moving into a new apartment so fml.
2. Getting a titanium screw implant. Ill be in a cast or removable splint for 4-6 weeks. The screw stays in for life.
Both offer basically a full chance of recovery and normal use after therapy.
So is there any downside to having a screw in for life? Will I set off detectors? I already know I wont be able to do CAT scans or be by absurdly powerful magnets.
