Much to my surprise, I'm going under the knife tomorrow. The doc was direct: Setting this particular break in a cast won't work long term. I'll lose substantial mobility and be at increased risk for arthritis. So, in goes a pin and a plate. Rehab involves working with a hand therapist; I'm pretty sure that that's a new development since my childhood bone breaking years (not that I actually broke anything as a kid).
