| | Can Injury or Surgery Cause Arthirtis?
I fell in Dec 2002 and torn the tendon in my pinky. I did 3 months of OT but ended up having the tendon surgically reconstructed in april of this year. My hand seemed to heal fine with the degree of pain lessening as time went by but all of the sudden in the past few weeks I've been getting throbbing pain in the lower part of my hand and fingers when I do certain things such as driving, writing ,cutting meat ....Is it possible my injury or surgery has caused some sort of arthritis? How can they determine what is causing this pain?
