Is my hand & wrist pain due to arthritis, already?

I had surgery on my right wrist about 8 years ago (I was 13 then, I am 21 now) after breaking my scaphoid in a HS football game. Thing is, I didn't know it was broken for a whole year until I finally decided to then get an X-Ray because my wrist had started to bother me. After surgery, the surgeon told me that I may get arthritis later on in life, but not until I'm well into my 40s.

The pain occurs in my wrist and on the top of my hand (below me knuckles and above my wrist). Physical activities such as lifting weights (or anything for the matter) that requires me to put stress on my wrist only makes it worse. The worst part is, I don't even have to put stress my wrist to feel the pain, it's just always there. When I'm not using my wrist, I'd rate the pain 4 out of 10 and when I put any stress on it, it's more like an 8 out of 10. The pain is VERY annoying.

Could this already be arthritis?
