Feb 8, 2019 · Pyrocarbon thumb joint replacement in Joint Replacements

Will you have the LRTI procedure now? Thats what my surgeon says is next. I wondered when he explained the Stablyx procedure why the Trapezium side of the joint would not be worn and painful, I should have listened to my instincts. It didn't make sense to me to replace half the joint and new xrays clearly show the Trapezium is damaged.. Doc tells me to wait a full year before giving up and nothing is lost going back to LRTI, nothing for him I guess, only $22,000 and a year of lost time.

Im passing 9 months since my Stablyx implant and its not going well. It seems I have more pain than before the procedure. Staying patient and will wait for my 1 year anniversary before going back for an LRTI or something else. Cannot button my pants, hold an IPad etc with this thumb. Improvement is so slow its undectable if indeed there is any. Is the Stablyx also know as the Carbon implant?
