Scaphoid Hope?


I broke the proximal pole of my scaphoid snowboarding March 2015. I had surgery a couple weeks later where a screw was inserted. I "healed" in terms of the bone fusion but continued to have pain in the wrist/ hand. This can be characterized as anytime I bore weight on the hand (getting out of a chair/bath, pushing anything etc.) as well as soreness from repetitive activities such as writing or cutting with scissors. I went back to the operating surgeon and determined that a good course of action would be to remove the screw. I had this surgery done in early December in conjunction with cleaning up a ton of scar tissue along my thumb from the previous surgery and am currently "healing" from that. Has anyone had a similar set of procedures/pain and can shed any light on the matter (recovery time if at all, limitations, pain)? I would really appreciate it. I am only 21 and was extremely active before this whole ordeal and just want to get back to my former self.

Thank You
