In brief: Doubtful

The tfcc is a cartilage and ligamentous complex that extends from the ulnar styloid to the ulnar border of the radius and acts to stabilize the distal radial ulnar joint.
It is deep within the wrist joint and cutting your wrists would not affect this structure. It is typically injured secondary to a fall on hyper extended wrist or with repetitive trauma.
