Non-Surgical Cure ?

Hope you can help!

I’m new to the Dupuytren's Forum, but not to Dupuytren's that showed up about 10 years ago. Had surgery on my left hand 2 years ago but Dupuytren's is now back in the L hand worse than ever. So I know from experience surgery is only a stopgap.

I know about the French Needle so I am very interested in info about non-surgical cures. Question:

1) Are there any legit non-surgical cures? Who and where?
2) Is the SUNY Stony Brook cure near going public? Any info on the status?
3) Are there any doctors (or anyone else) doing injections? Who and where?

Please help with any info you have. I don’t want any more surgery!

Thanks Very Much!

Dupuytren~sq~s and trigger finger

Six years ago while I was in nursing school, my middle finger kept "cramping". It was driving me nuts trying to do what I was supposed to and taking notes, etc. I finally went to a doctor and he told me I had a trigger finger. He injected me with an ungodly amount of cortizone (I could have whopped him upside the head - it hurt so bad) but have never had any more problems whatsoever. For the last six months or so, I have noticed these growths on my tendons in my palms on both ring fingers - and my pinkys and ring fingers are almost constantly numb. A doctor told me I had Dupuytren's - which I had never heard of. So they did nerve conduction tests (I could have whopped him, too) and I go to see an expert tomorrow morning. I might want to mention that I've had diabetes for 30 years and a number of other problems, so I have gotten used to symptoms of neuropathy. I play the piano and bassoon and it's gotten so bad that sometimes I can't feel the keys. I figure if it's rare - I'll have it. I'm so grateful for finding this website. I'll post again if I find a miracle out there somewhere!

Distinguishing features between Dupe and Trigger Finger

For three years I have had a ring finger difficult to open in the AM. I thought it was trigger finger from the descriptions and now reading about Dupe think I have may not be correct as I have a small nodule and dimple on the palm. What are the main externally obvious distinguishing features?
