Hello! @stoney – I’ll try to help with insight to my own experience.
First off, I too was bone-on-bone. I am 3 weeks post-op this past Wednesday. I will get my cast removed tomorrow, x-ray series & possibly another cast or splint.
Here is a link for what I have implanted: http://www.integralife.eu/products/recon/orthopedics/upper/hand-wrist/hand/nugrip-cmc-implant/
My size is 30s.
Right now, I can’t say whether I have improvement or not; too soon to say, lol! I will keep you posted on my own journey….
If you don’t mind a few questions:
1) how old are you?
2) what is your profession?
What does your surgeon say regarding your progress? Did he give you an idea of how you should be progressing?
My surgeon said it will take approximately 1 year from the surgery to have the optimal results….
