I am waiting for my wrist widget, but I am still waiting for a reply from Wendy Howard as I emailed questions a few weeks ago, and I have had no reply. I have ordered the wrist widget even though I am wondering why I have had no reply from wendy. I feel that for the price it is good to try it regardless of customer service. I am not sure why I have had no reply but I will most certainly be endorsing the product if it works.
Thought i'd share my updates..
I've been going to PT. Turns out I have scar tissue build up between some carpals and on some extensor tendons. Slowly but surely I am getting some relief.
I too am bracing. I may order the widget. Let me know how securely it holds your wrist. So far I have just been taping with sports tape.
I would be really curious to hear how the widget work for you if you get one. I have some major mid carpal instability going on and would love to hear if this little device makes a significant difference.
I am still waiting fo the widget, but after ordering it I got an email from Wendy confirming postage and enquiring what condition I was treating. After emailling her back, I recieved another email just advising meon how best to use it.
So now I am just waiting for it....
It has been 1 week now, I expect I should get it next week
How have you guys been doing as far as treatments go with your TFCC tears?
I have undergone multiple arthroscopies and one wrist fusion. After the fusion (which was surgery number 5 at that point) he wrist was finally stable enough that I was no longer in pain with no problems. I eventually over the recent months started to have quite severe wrist pain again after a very minor fall. Went in to see my old orthopedic wrist surgeon to see why I might be suffering.
He told me it's very rare for them to come back, but that he has had a few patients come back after fusions with 3rd degree mid carpal instability. I'm scheduled for a midcarpal ligament reconstruction on August 13th.
Anyone have had another kind of procedure or alternative treatments for similar issues?
Hi all, I just received my wrist widget today. I am just figuring out how to put it on properly and I will let you know how it all goes in a week or two.
I am most grateful for the kind words in these emails.

I am in Brisbane. I paid for it on April 29th. Got an email on April 30th saying that it would be 'tomorrow' which wuld have then been May 1st. It was in May 11th that I received it. So I would think you would get it shortly. It came in a normal envelope. Only detailing this because I thought it might come in something like a post pak and was surprised (pleasantly) when I opened the envelop and it was in it. LOL Have you tried emailing Wendy? Hope I have helped...
yes i have tried emailing wendy and she said she posted it on the 29th. i never actually got a confermation email from wendy stating when it would arrive, but i did get one from PayPal saying that the money was payed and all.
yes you did help, i just hope i get it soon.
how is it going for you by the way?
