Hi I am fairly new to this site. I had my left pisiform removed and a Herbert sling. The surgery was done 4/12/2013. I am in a lot of pain. I have to wear a cast for 6 weeks, then a splint for 6 weeks. My ring finger on my hand can not straighten when I open my hand. I will be revisiting my surgeon for a third visit. First visit was to remove the surgical splint and put on a cast. Second was to remove the stitches and put on a new cast. Third is because I need to know if I am improving as hoped? And last why can't I straighten my fourth finger?I am very concerned. Any suggestions???

It does get better, I recovered from my operation really quickly, three weeks in a cast and that was it. Avoid crowds etc for a while. But now I've got the pain back that I had before the operation, the tendon has flaired up again. Now I'm getting worried that I'll need another operation, having had my right hand operated on in the meantime for carpal tunnel syndrome. So thought it was over. Hopefully the week of painkillers will sort it out.
 
How are you getting on now?

I know that this thread is rather old but i want to add to it for those doing research. I got in a motorcycle accident last year and fractured my pisiform. THANK GOD that was the only damage!!!! but anyway, after some physical therapy and cortisone injections we decided that excision of the pisiform was the only option.

So yesterday was surgery day! Once i got to the surgery hospital a lady guided me to the prep/waiting room. Once she took my blood pressure she sat me down and hooked up an IV. THIS WAS THE WORST PART OF THE WHOLE SURGERY! XD But it was bearable. She left me there for about 30 minutes to get the iv flowing. Then I was guided to the surgery room. they laid me down as comfortably as possible and injected something into my IV line. IMMEDIATELY I felt extremely calm and strangely HAPPY to be quite honest. i told the assistant this and she just laughed and told me i was going to be perfectly fine and I am in good hands. I was fully awake during the entire procedure but not entirely aware of what was happening. all i knew for sure was that i felt really good! XD What seemed to be only seconds later (which i have been informed by my wife was really about 45 minutes) I was lead to a recovery room. I felt fine minus some minor pain in my hand. we went to mcdonalds for dinner and walmart to pick up a pain meds prescription and then home. i took the amount i was told to by the doctor and went to bed.

These posts are all pretty dated....
Anyone out there with recent, 2016-2017 experience with removal of the pisiform bone?
