I had basal joint arthritis surgery(thumb) on August 26. There have been improvements in my range of motion over the months and through hand therapy, but the pain continues, is constant and very limiting in my activities. I'm still fearful of even shaking hands with someone. I no longer take any narcotic pain relievers, and rely on ibuprofen or naproxen. Neither one offers satisfactory relief. My fingers are stiff, I still have swelling, especially in the morning. The pain at the joint is still between 7 & 8 on the medical scale. I was told that it would be 6 months before my hand would feel normal, but didn't anticipate pain on this level for this long. Suffice to say I'm reluctant to have the surgery in my left hand.View Thread

I am a 31 year old female and I am having to get a osteotomy for my knee and was wondering if anyone has had one of these and how it worked out for you and if you walk with a limp? I also was given the choice to have a partial knee replacement. just wanted to see others experiences with both.
Hi. I was just wondering if anyone has had the same experience that I have had. I had surgery done for Trigger finger in August of 2014 and now I have Swan Neck Deformity. Is this a common side effect.View Thread
