  1. I would be particularly interested to hear more about the procedures for her trigger finger. I have trigger finger in both hands and have been a little qualmish about seeing a hand surgeon about it.

  2. @Brian: Pretty simple procedure. 1/4″ cut in the palm of your hand and a couple stitches and it is released. She had pointer done earlier. The only draw back is the anesthesia – our surgeon wanted her out completely. So that means recovery room stay is longer than surgery. Immediate relief she says, playing golf within a week.

    Pointer in the other hand is now triggering, eventually that will needs some attention.

  3. Thanks! Seems pretty certain that the general anesthesia was due to the other procedures she had done, since that sounds pretty minor. Both of my ring fingers are involved, and some days it’s quite painful, so I think I need to man up and git ‘r done.

  4. @Brian: as always, medical advice presented on a blog, no matter how of this blog is absolutely correct on a percentage comparable El Rushbo, it probably isn’t.

    Please consult a medical professional.

    When she had one finger released she still was knocked out.

    OR, give me a buzz and we’ll get buzzed and take care of your pain ourselves.
