injury caused DC

I played volleyball for over 10 years in my 30's and 40's until I broke my right ring finger. While treating this, my doctor diagnosed DC, which has continued to worsen. I am getting to the point where surgery is under serious consideration, but am worried that the surgical trauma would countervene any benefits. Anybody have trauma-induced DC and subsequent surgery?

Newly diagnosed Dup

I am a 41 year old female. Ihad surgery on my left wrist in July. They pinned a ligament that was ruptured. I noticed this nodule in my palm more than a month ago. My Physical Therapist thought it was Trigger Finger. I was diagnosed last week by my Orthopod with Dup and Reflex
sympathetic Dystrophy which is definitely a complication from the surgery. Apparently the Dup is a coincidence. I am interested in the Collagenase study as many of you are. Does anyone have any info. My case is still very mild, I have the nodule and my left little finger is just slightly bent. Also I understandi this is a slow progressing disease, what does that mean, months, years, tens of years?
Thanks.

Newly diagnosed Dup???

I am a 40 yr old male (italian/irish). I had sugery in september on my right pointer finger to remove scar tissue around the nerve after an accident with a screw driver punchure a month prior ( a very small one at that). The finger swelled up over the course of a few weeks and movement was restricted. Being a Left Handed guitar player this has put me out of business. Well, it has been 12 weeks since sugury and the swelling has NOT gone down. I am on viox, no help there.I have now developed a bump on the outside of the finger on the tip (outside) of the 1st joint from the knuckle that my dr now blames on DUP!
no bumps in the palm, just on the finger. Where is the connection here? I am confused and frustrated HELP, ANYONE!

lump on knuckle

I had surgery on my finger 6 years ago due to a splinter.
I had contacted a bacterial infection from the splinter.
The doctors had to go and cut my finger to drain the
infection. About 2 years ago my finger started drawing up
and now I have a lump on my knuckle on that finger. It
is the middle finger on my right hand. I just went to
the doctor they were not sure what caused the lump on
my knuckle. They said the finger is drawing up due to
scar tissue, but they would not want to do surgery to remove the scar tissue because it produces more scar tissue. I just am not very satisfed with the answer they
gave me now I am wondering could it be dupuytren disease
the doctors never have mentioned that to me. Anyone know where I find out more about this or is there any way to know for sure if you have this disease.
Thanks, Linda

Dupuytren~sq~s after surgery

I am a 55 year old female. I had basal joint arthroplasty surgery on my right thumb in January 2001. I noticed a lump in the palm of my right hand in May. I went back to my surgeon on May 25th and he now says that I have Dupuytren's disease, but that it has nothing to do with the surgery. Has anyone else experienced this disease as an aftermath of basal joint arthroplasty surgery?

dupuytren~sq~s disease and basil joint surgery


I had basil joint surgery April 2001 and developed a nodule at the base of my right hand ring finger two months later. Saw my surgeon past Fri who diagnosed it as dupuytren's disease. He states it is heritary and not related to any hand trama or injury. As I gather info through the net I am questioning if there is a correlation. Have you come across any info that considers a connection between the two??? Maureen

Dupuytren~sq~s after hand surgery-response to Maureen

The only information that I have that talk abouts a possible correlation between the two, is funny enough a flyer that my surgeon gave to me when I went to see him for a follow-up to the surgery and asked him about the lump in the palm of my hand. Although the disease is hereditary, the flyer stated that it could be brought on by "routine hand surgery". It would be nice if they told us this might happen before having the basal joint surgery. Was your surgery successful? I have been having a lot of problems and am not happy with the results at all. The splint that they put on after removing the cast caused damage to my superficial radial nerve, and it's been all downhill since then.

HAND SURGERY

I WENT TO THE DR A YEAR AGO AND HE DIAGNOSED ME WITH DUPUYTREN'S DISEASE. HE TOLD ME TO COME BACK IN SIX MONTHS. I DID AND IT WAS DECIDED THAT I SHOULD HAVE SURGERY. THE SURGERY WAS THIS PAST MONDAY. SO FAR EVERYTHING HAS BEEN OKAY AND I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO USING MY HAND AND FINGERS AGAIN. HOPE IT DOESN'T COME BACK AGAIN. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ, IT LOOKS LIKE THIS SURGERY WOULD HELP YOU.
