So I watched this,loved the graphics but I have already had the Trapezium removed in both thumbs.Left one went well right one is getting worse with every yr that passes. I am 7yrs post op.It feels like the tendon is just going to rip apart. The pain feels like the Scaphiod is compromised. What should I ask my GP ? to go back for a 4th visit to the plastic surgeon that did it or ask for a Ortho opinion ?

Hi @anniebrook Ouch! Just describing your pain makes me have sympathy pains. I can't offer advice – but I can help you brainstorm. What would be the downside in asking for an orthopedic consult? I don't think it that would preclude going back to the plastic surgeon later if needed. What would be lost by getting another opinion from a different medical specialist – especially since you've seen the plastic surgeon 3 times already? Maybe you could explore those questions with your GP?
