Re: Women with Dupuytren's

Hi Anastasia,
I wouldn’t have RT if you are trying to get pregnant. I was insanely careful about every decision I made during that time in my life. Maybe the injections will help prevent contracture. That said, studies (from six years ago) showed that targeted RT doesn’t seem to have a negative effect on your health. I was not willing to go the route of injections, numerous surgeries, long recoveries and possibly losing the use of my hand. I have absolutely no regrets about my treatment. I read numerous articles and studies done in Europe, and that convinced me the U.S. was really NOT up to speed on this disease. I feel fortunate that I found a doctor here at home, and that my treatment was covered by insurance. My radiologist used the German RT protocol.
I hope that everything goes well for you...especially having little ones!
Best wishes,
Lori

Re: Women with Dupuytren's

Thank you for all your posts on this thread I found the reading very interesting especially Lori's sharing on RT. I was diagnosed with DP about two years ago and didn't really think much of it. The doctor told me not to worry about it like I hear so many of you say. The nodules started on my right hand and have now shown up quite prominently in my left hand which definitely has me concerned. They are painful to the touch and the disease seems to be progressing quite quickly. I'm 52 and of north European dissent with Swedish lineage.
