I have found it interesting in here, how many people have, or have had trigger finger problems. They say, it is not related. But, after 3 trigger finger operations, I wonder. The last one, was on the very same finger, that now is where the cord is. Even before I had this last trigger finger operation, I had something standing up in my hand ( Cord ) and he did not diagnose it until after the trigger finger surgery. It seems, to me, it is related, and if not, then, it must just mean, if you have this disease, you also have other hand problems. Don't know. I went back after the trigger finger surgery, and wanted to know why this thing was still in my hand, thinking it was a tendon. That is when he told me I had DC.
