I recently found out I broke the navicular bone in my wrist. Am I doomed to have wrist pain forever?

No. The navicular or scaphoid bone fracture can lead to chronic pain and wrist degeneration if not appropriately treated. However with appropriate treatment such as: casting, bone stimulation, open reduction, bone grafting, vascular bone grafting and soft tissue repair, these issues can be prevented. Seek care with a fellowship trained hand surgeon.
