Re: Basal joint arthroplasty 1 year ago
I had Basal thumb surgery 3 years ago because of pain due to arthritis. It worked and was brilliant, then about 2 weeks ago my thumb has started being very painful again, also i cant bend it in the morning as it seems to set in the night. The past few days the stiffness lasts all day and when using it, it bends on its own accord and the pain is excrutiating, my GP has written to my surgeon to see what can be done. I dont know if this is a normal problem with this kind of treatment but i will let you know when i have seen the surgeon. Hope this helps.
