Involuntary Wrist Bending

Okay, before I explain, I'm Kerry and I'm new. So please be easy on me. lol

As a teenager, I was diagnosed with Keinbock's Disease (the lunate bone lost blood supply and is dying) in my right wrist. Two years ago, I noticed in the same wrist that it involuntarily bends downward...to give a better example, when someone when mental retardation bends their wrist against their chest, that sort of thing. It also causes my middle finger to raise up every so often. So I had an MRI done, and was told I believe it was a C6-C7 cervical verterbre fusion. However, I still suffer with the wrist movement. This has caused me to have trouble writing, drawing (I'm an artist) even lifting cups without suddenly jerking and dropping them. With the Keinbock's mixed in, it's no picnic especially when trying to sleep and it bends constantly. I was wondering what treatments or whatnot I could do to actually stem the nerve, muscle, or whatever it is that's doing this. Surgery is my final option at the moment, but I totally am up for anything now.
