A: Dupuytrens on the hands, primarily on the 'pip' (knuckle pads) on both hands and twice on the bottom of my right index finger, and now on the bottom of my left pinkie near the palm (it's NEW, but will be watching it closely.
A: Surgery by hand surgeon(s) excising the large pip (knuckle) bumps on three fingers on each hand, with three requiring a 2nd removal. With a different hand surgeon, large pip nodule and bottom of finger nodule that was slowly pulling my finger down. Again, both came back, requiring a 2nd surgery. Left me with some numbness in finger, still functional, but cannot straighten finger all the way up. I can live with it, as long as they don't come back. It's been 3 years, so far so good.
A: Yes. Surgery for my hands has been successful and my hand surgeon(s) explained the DC could come back. It sometimes does. That's just how it is. As for Ledderhose, yes I am satisfied with the outcome. I still have pain in both feet (dependent on what activity and how much stress I put on my feet), but the RT STOPPED any new ones (except the one on the side of one foot) and stopped the growth of the current nodules I still have. I go to a Pain management Dr. and am prescribed Schedule III pain medication (USA rating for pain meds). In Europe, I believe you can get codeine or some equivalent to take when you have done activity that still creates sharp pain during, or pain the morning from the activity and stress you put on feet (like hiking, running, etc) the day before. Keep in mind - the RT really helped, as I am positive that the nodules would have gotten bigger and, maybe, more of them! Not pain free, but MUCH better to take pain meds than the other option of losing a foot! So, yes, I'm satisfied with my treatments.
