Thank you for welcoming me to your forum! I was just diagnosed two weeks ago. If I had not found the Dupuytren Society on the web site, I would still be in the dark about this condition and I wouldn't have any options. The two hand surgeons I saw just told me to "watch and wait" and when I couldn't put my hand down on a table, come in and discuss surgery with them (I imagine many of you have been told this, too). I learned about Dr. Kline from your forum; I talked to Dr. Kline and his assistant, Jill, in Boise, and hope to have steroid injections and then radiation for a nodule on my right hand.
I'm grateful for all the information I've gathered from the web site and the forum,
