Hi Gary,

Some nerve damage on my left hand from the open procedure, Dr Chin worked hard to release my index finger which was at about 45 degrees in the operation but I guess the tissue was affected by the 4 NA releases previously and to quote Dr Chin was a bit of a mess and mass. The hand is beautifully straight after op some 11 months ago but has some weakness in grip.

Right hand is going to be a candidate for release number 3, not too sure if this will be a candidate for the injection by DR Chin as the involvement is in the MCP area or if I can make France I think I'd opt for NA.

Left foot is great following the treatment by Dr Chin with no further progression apart from the small nodule previously mentioned, Right foot has 6 nodules slowly forming a big area of concern. Sigh.... Oh and my Right shoulder which had a frozen episode some 10 years ago has just been diagnosed with "severe to moderate" arthritis (not too sure if this is relevant to DD) ... what fun!

Keep on smiling because there are worse things than this!

Cheers,

Terry

Hi Gazza,

Well the left foot is still perfect after 16 months, so I will probably get the right done sometime soon as the nodules are getting quite large.

Left hand is still straight as a die, still some weakness in grip and loss of sensation at base of finger. Right hand has ring finger on the contracting march but I may get it released in France during a vacation (I hope).

I would be contacting Dr Chin and getting the LD done now if its bothering you, if my experience is anything to go by its been a resounding success for me but I didn't have any nerve involvement. Hope this helps,

Cheers

Terry

Hi Steven,

It sounds like you are getting some decent options recommended. I just wanted to chime in about surgery. I had a fibroma removed in March of 2014. Three months later it had returned with such vengeance that my toes went competent numb and they had to go back in and take out a much larger area.

I know that some people do have success with surgery and even personally know someone. I was hoping to be one of the happy endings. Ultimately, I ended up doing radiation after the second surgery anyway. Please, please consider surgery only as a last resort. The potential complications and even just the scar tissue afterwards may not give you the results you desire.

Best of luck!
