Many of us on this forum have had to confront life-altering conditions/diseases/injuries so we have ample empathy for both you and your son - any serious illness affects not only the person afflicted but also the entire family.
From your brief narrative I would think it would be an uphill climb to have your son’s wrist/forearm status ruled as a work based/caused injury subjective to workman’s comp benefits. Susie is wise in counseling you to spend time becoming informed of the process.
I have osteonecrosis of my femoral heads due to corticosteroid use. In looking for avenues of care, I became affiliated with a restorative medicine practice in Portland, Oregon called RestorePDX. This clinic and it’s medical director (Rahual Desai, MD) is world’s ahead of conventional medical providers. I would encourage you to Google “RestorePDX” and read about
their cutting edge therapies. This clinic is not isolated in its frontier approaches to restoring joint and muscular kinesiology. There may be a similar restorative medicine provider in your local California community that could bring you a fresh perspective of your son’s debilitating situation.
