dupuytens

I had carpel tunnel surgery in Feb. of this year. everything seemed to be going just fine. then I discovered two small lumps in the palm of my hand. It didnt hurt, so I tried to ignor it. The Dr. mentioned that if anything strangeed appeared this year to let him know. I did. and was told I had dupuytens disease bought on by the trauma of the C.T.S. I was floored. He didnt seem very helpful with information. except "If my hand goes into a claw come back and see him" I am scared to death. I am an artist and it is my right hand. can anyone give me some good information on what to expect. does this disease always get worse? what can I look foward to. and is there anything I can do to stop the disease from spreading and claming my hand. Thanks Ronne Marino
I do not fit the profile. I am Italian not northern Europe and I am female and no one in my family has had this disease.

Duputren~sq~s

Ronne,
DC does not get better, however it might not get worse either. Many have the small lumps and that is it for life. Mine started contracting and reached 90 degrees in 16 months. That is what makes DC so interesting, no one knows what it will do.

DC after carpal tunnel surgery

I also had my DC show up after carpal tunnel surgery in February. Now I have three lima bean sized and one pea sized nodules in my left hand, one very small nodule in my right hand, and two medium (but painful) nodules in my left foot. Have had custom orthodics made, use vitamin E daily, gone to both orthopaedic surgeon and foot surgeon. They both tell me surgery is the answer when my hands curl and my foot becomes too painful. Am hoping collaganese will be available before that time comes.

A possible remedy

Was anyone advised prior to their surgery that they were predisposed or that dc could possibly occur? I was not even aware of dc or that I could develope this prior to my surgeries until after I went to the doctor and looked it up on the internet.

A possible remedy

I had trigger finger surgery several years ago. My physician told me I had duputren's. He suggested that I take an amino "alpha lupoic acid". I had a nodule starting on my other had, but it went away after about six months after starting alpha lupoic.

alpha lipoic acid

What amount did you take, and how often? What form was it in?

Newest treatment

I have a lima bean sized nodule on each hand but no significant contracture yet. Can anyone tell me if there are any new procedures that are non-invasive -- ie. using sound, etc. I heard a rumor that Stanford University had a procedure like this that avoided cutting open the hand to remove the nodules. Thanks -- Todd.

Vicki, I assume you have Dupuytren's? How long have you been taking A.L.A. and in what amounts?
