Surgery on hand for Dupuytren~sq~s Disease

Sir:

Today I was diagnoised with this disease. Of course I want my hand "put right" but reading some of the discussion comments has raised a question in my mind.

All things being equal ---- would you have the operation or just live with it? It's on my left hand and is slow acting and after ten years just now affects my typing and holding large objects.

Any comment woulld be appreciated.

Surgery

Robert,
Your choices are: 1) Do nothing until it reaches 50-60 degrees contraction. 2) Have surgery and get it fixed. 3) Go to Europe and have NA.
Chances are that there will be recurrence depending on your age and family background.
Good luck.

Surgery

I had Dupuytren's in my left hand to the point my middle finger was contracting, it was very bad. Dr. Barden in FL operated on my hand, and its completely better, I now have the right hand forming nodules, I have 3 with dimpling started below the pinkie finger. Once it starts pulling any of my fingers down, I will have the surgery. I have no problems with my left hand now. Also I was awake while the surgery was done. They just numbed my arm and put a contricting band to slow the blood flow. Was up and out of the day surgery in no time. Stopped and had breakfast on my way home.

dupuytrens contracture

I have it DC. second finger to my pinky on right hand. I was told it was handed down from euopean decent. well alomst everyone in USA is of european decent didint we all come over on the mayflower or one of those ships. How can the doctors or worker comp or edd come up with that decision. I beyond a shadow of a doubt believe mine is caused from over keyboarding abuse. I want to get mine fixed but do not have enough money to go to europe. I will have to go to our great physician and creator Jesus Christ for my healing. Looks like none one knows where it comes from and how to permantely fix it. heeeeeelllllllPPPPP

Dr. Eaton M.D.

I think a lot of us have been praying......and what we got was Dr. Eaton in Florida. Read: "Dr. Eaton on TV". While I agree that physical healing is encompassed in the atonement (Mell's going to show us the spikes going right through His hands....No NA for JC), should God choose not to heal you, He's given you a back up plan.

God Bless

Thank You for your response, I have been off work since 11-19-03 it wasn't until last night that I was able somehow to understand the disease at all no one wanted to help me then I got on Dr. Eatons sight and found there was hope. I am praying though and asking the Lord if it is due to bitterness, family curse, unforgiveness, or some sin that has caused this, because in my heart and according to the bible Jesus defeated the devil on the cross, and all sickness and disease is from the devil. So you have to seek Jesus to find out if it is an attack from the devil, or some sin in your my life, or like the blind man from birth so that Jesus Christ may be glorified by your healing. I am blessed there is someone in the USA that knows what is going on with this disease, though only God knows where it comes from and how to cure it.

Cyst surgery

I too had surgery for a "cyst" on my middle finger. It was swollen and sore, so I had the surgery. I went back for post op check up and said "it's back" told it was scar tissue and to massage it. Well here we are months later and I have nodule in my palm, small amount of bend in the finger and it is swollen and sore. So now it's Dupuytren's Disease. Been going to PT 3 times a week and when I leave there it feels good and is very flexable. The next morning it is sore and stiff again. PT can only last so long, now I need to know what I can do myself to keep this at bay. I am 57 and hope this will not spread like some others I read about. It is very sore though and I could do without that. Have a few things to try thanks to the forum today.
