    Ahhh but @EeeBees my son told me about this procedure when I showed him my hand. When I told my doc where my info came from, he replied "these young bloody doctors know every thing". My docs about my age, he's an awesome doc, always happy to learn hhahahaha

    I'm very pleased to hear there might be a treatment available and I sure hope it works for you Maca, because the alternative isn't that attractive. I have a friend with the problem and at the tender young age of mid-40's has already had two fingers amputated and is facing more in future. I can't imagine how debilitating that is.

    Good luck with getting it sorted.

    Re amputation: I tend to drop things like a screwdriver or shower bottle as the missing finger is (was) surprisingly ‘grippy’. I have lots of fun at traffic lights when I pretend to be sticking my (missing) little finger up my nose.

    Your little finger is your strongest I think. So that'll be why you drop things.

    We have dupuytrens in the family, old man has it bad. It does tie back to viking bloodlines supposedly.

    Mum has carpal tunnel in both hands and has had to have them both operated on.

    The guy that does my ops is supposedly the top hand specialist in the Country and he says that its called Viking's disease and does trace to Scandinavia.
