Scaphoid non union
I had a surgery of a 6 month scaphoid non union on 31/12/2016 (open reduction screw fixation with hip bone grafting with k-wire for support). My hand was in cast for about a month and a half. I still have a lot of pain and the doctor says everything is fine. The cast, k-wire and stitches were removed on 21/01/2017. I think the surgery failed as the x-rays don't look the the ones on internet. The doctor gave me a wrist cock up splint for support. Will i be in pain for the rest of my life? My parents say don't argue with the doctor. He's a professional and you're not.

There can be lots of presumable expected and unexpected things in your case, not entirely doctors fault. He has done the procedure it's your body which behaves in a variety of manner in response. Do share an x ray. It will be interesting but further to take a second opinion please visit a doctor in person which caters to practice of hand and wrist surgery.
