I know it's been 3 years now from the log sine your surgery. I am wondering how you are. If you don't mind. I'm have Basal joint arthritis the worst in my left hand and it is getting worse and worse in my right. I am putting off surgery as long as I can and looking into acupuncture currently just as any possible alternative. I am a Chef and very concerned about the recooperation time and possible redamaging my hands. If you have any thought would you mind letting me know.
