Injury Management and Rehab

I recently saw a hand specialist who advised me that I need an operation to repair a broken scaphoid incurred in May 2000. Despite being able to train pretty much as normal, the specialist and my own research indicates I would be advised to have this operation. Has anyone had or trained someone with this type of injury which required surgery?

I was thinking of performing isometrics and buying an EMS unit to reduce the rate of atrophy in the right side of my body. I was also going to take plenty of MSM,glucosamine/chondroitin as well as upping vitamin C esp. around the date of the surgery. Does this sound good and does anyone have any more suggestions?
