RMC, thank you again for the info.
Where did you get the hand splint that you wear at night? Sounds like Dr. Denkler provided it. Is that something that you have or may need to get adjusted? I can't picture how the hand splint is made.

Re: Intervention treatments - How long to wait?

I have many nodules in my rt palm including two at the base of my thumb. There appears to be a cord forming on the thumb as well. My pinkie finger is most involved but little contracture in the finger itself. There is also a little contracture in my thumb none of the other fingers. Contracture is mostly in the palm which appears to be a cord forming deep extending from the many nodules at the base of my pinkie finger. I also have some general contracture of my whole palm. Movement of the pinkie from side to side is not smooth, but it jerks across a nodule or cord or something inside the palm near the base of my pinkie. (It's hard to describe, so I hope my description makes some sense to somebody.) I was first diagnosed in November 2007, but it seems to have been progressing more in the past 3-4 months. I have now stopped taking Condroitin/Glucosamine, just in case.
I'm quite sure that I will go for NA. I'm wondering if I should get NA very soon rather than later which was my gut feeling. I was thinking of getting NA in April, then was thinking I'd wait until late July. No real reason not to go ahead, just a little more convenient in my schedule. I am convinced that I will NOT have surgery. What experiences have you had regarding delaying or going ahead and having alternative procedures done, NA, Radiation, anything but surgery?

i had a place like yours where pinkie connected to palm so i could'nt spread that finger very far apart. Dr, Denkler fixed it with the needle. your nodules might be helped with kenalog injections. send pics of your hands to one of the na doctors.
