Nov 6, 2018 · Bone on bone thumbs in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Thanks for asking. I met with the surgeon who is willing to continue injecting my thumbs until such time as they fail to relieve the pain. He impressed upon me that the thumb replacement is a Major Surgery. I agreed to wait until there are no other options.

Thanks. Yes I have used Voltaren as my first line of defense where anti-inflammatories are concerned for about five years as well. I've heard variations of doctors not wanting you to have the injections and use the Voltaren at the same time but I do it when is necessary.

I've been having injections in both thumbs approx. every 4 months for 5 years. Bone on bone from arthrisits. I am a legal assistant and play the piano. Last injection to rt. thumb was 2 months ago and a flare-up two days ago was the worst yet. Pain/swelling advanced into my wrist and I could not relieve the pain without total immobilization of my lower rt. arm. Ortho injected and relief was almost immediate. I see a surgeon in two days.
I need to work another 7 years. Will this surgery put an early end to that?
