Any further feedback re the operation? About to have second steroid injection which I’ve put off having for a month or so. Specialist still recommending op as thumb is becoming quite disfigured and now at a funny angle. Although pain isn’t really a problem (more just an ache in the cold weather), the problem still remains with grabbing onto things, releasing and twisting jar lids etc. I’ve been assured by the Specialist the rehab isn’t so bad either – 2 weeks in a thumb brace so as to stop movement and allow proper healing, then 6 weeks in a small thumb brace (similar to what I wear now occasionally at night or when I have pain). I’m thinking now that surgery may be the best thing but still procrastinating as to when that might be.
