I am an avid rifleman, not necessarily good but love and shoot obessevilly. Ive been on disability for 25+ years. The V.A. has offered to rebuild my hands and wrists. Does anyone have any experience with joint replacement with Knuckles and wrists? I do get by with what limited use of my hands, but they are promising me possible miraculous results. I am totaly responsible for my Mother who has limited mental capacity due to early stages of altzimers. I manage and do what I have to do with my incompacaties at this time. I am on the negative side of having these rather extensive procedures done. I am almost 63. Has anyone had similar surgery, and do you recommend it. ? recovery time, success? Really would like some direction or thoughts.
