Treatment in Sweden.

Hi,

I am irish, but currently living in Sweden (since 2002). I am 36 and had developed dupuytrens first 10 years ago, then I had two surgeries (normal and skin graft) on my little finger left hand - crooked but stable since.

Now I got the signs of a nodule on my right hand and I wondered if anyone is aware of some good doctors or treatment centres in Sweden. Interesting to hear of radiation therapy for example, this was not an option previously, otherwise a trip to Paris for some needle work might be on the cards if the condition worsens. Appreciate any input.

For those that wonder about relationships with other conditions (arthritis, inflammatory diseases...) I would be interested in hearing about your thoughts. I also played handball (the squash without a racquet version as opposed to the olympic version) for a few years when I was young and that certainly battered the bejaysus out of both hands at the time, so there may be a link to trauma and later development of the illness as is suggested sometimes.

Also interested in hearing about diet or nutritional deficencies and if people think that these can be a problem. Generally I look after myself quite well, but you never know maybe there is something missing from the diet.

Bit long winded, I guess it serves as a bit of an introduction of who I am as I have not been active on a dup forum for a few years. Main question though is about resources or support in Sweden.

All the best.

John.
