Re: Basal Joint reconstruction..Should I wait???

How? I just had to suck it up. My husband carried part of the load. There were a few things that I absolutely could not do--cut up food and diaper & bathe my son. So DH had to do those things. I had...

Re: Severe basal joint arthritis - surgery 9/11/12

I know! People would try to shake my hand and it would almost bring me to my knees. Carrying groceries, unlocking a door, even using tape brought tears to my eyes. I tried everything to relieve my...

Re: Basal Joint reconstruction..Should I wait???

*nods* That was the way my thumb joint was, filled with bone debris and crunchy. It sounds like you're on track. I was surprised that I didn't have more pain than I did. At 3 weeks, I was taking...

Re: what should i do

You sound pretty manic. Do you have any psych doctor that you could call? If not, I'd suggest getting an evaluation a a local psych hospital. As you probably know, general docs and ER docs have...

Re: Basal Joint reconstruction..Should I wait???

In my opinion you are too young to have to live with this on a daily basis. I went through the same thing you are. I had young children.I had a full-time job RN position. My husband was fully...

Re: Severe basal joint arthritis - surgery 9/11/12

I had basal thumb joint reconstruction in 2007. Best thing I ever did. If I had known that I would have less pain in the first 5 days of recovery than I did before surgery, I wouldn't have waited as...

Re: Thumb help

What is LRTI? I had the basal joint reconstructed about 5 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did. I went into surgery with constant pain and only 30% function in my dominant hand. AFter...

Re: Dx today

My husband has been diagnosed with sarocoidosis for 9 years. We had never heard of it either, before he got it. Most people do pretty well with sarcoidosis and need only a few months of treatment....

Re: How did you know when it was time for surgery?

Interestingly,as bad as my foot hurt yesterday, that's how much better it is today. :round: Hardly any pain, just a little stiff. Of course, this is the first day in 8 that I haven't worn my boot. I...

Re: How did you know when it was time for surgery?

With regard to the cortisone shots...generally I haven't had trouble with them. I've had at least 10 shots in my heels, 3 in my post-tibial tendons, and 6 in my basal thumb joints. They weren't the...

Re: How did you know when it was time for surgery?

i don't know if the Voltaren is helping either. I'm highly allergic to ibuprofen(anaphylaxis!) and the *one* time I took tramadol it made me sick as a dog and I hallucinated terrible things for...
