I still am not that great. I've had two cortisone shots in my thumb in one month. They work for a short time. My Dr last week took more X-rays and said the arthritis in the other joints in my thumb along with the sesamoid bones are deteriorating and are rubbing on the tendons. I'm really at my wits end. The pain isn't that bad but I can't lift or pinch and my strength is minimal. I am going for another opinion as my Dr now says to do surgery and remove the sesamoids. I thought he was the best surgeon in town but now have my doubts. It's been 8 months for me!!!
Take care and rest. Happy 4th of July. I have 2 of my kids here and 3 grandkids so I'm happy!! LOL
I also have my doubts about your surgeon! When he operated on your hand howcome he didnt see that you had arthritis in the other joints??
You have made the right decision to see another doctor & I wish you good luck.
Please let us know what he will tell you.
Hang in there Janet.
