[IP] Trigger Finger/Thumb Question

Hi Everyone.

I know that there was a thread on trigger finger before, but I don't
remember that these 2 questions were discussed.
I have trigger thumb and it is quite painful to write - and almost
impossible to open up the test strip bottle.

Is there anything I could be doing (while I wait a few weeks to see the
specialist) to lessen the discomfort?
and Is there anything I could be doing to bring the swelling of the tendon
down?  (any special creams?)

Right now, my doc thinks that they are going to operate  - has anyone else
had this done?
