Re: [IP] Trigger finger...er, thumb?

Sounds like trigger finger to me.  My diabetic sister just had this problem 
with her thumb and had a successful outpatient surgery.  Her thumb was too 
far gone for cortisone injections which she would have refused anyway after a 
previous bad experience with it.   She had the clicking and pain in her 
thumb. Originally her primary care doctor had her try to wait it out to see 
how it would get but after being referred to a specialist (orthopedics?) she 
was immediately scheduled for surgery and did really well.  Her thumb was 
bandaged after surgery and while later her stitches were taken out.  Good
