Re: [IP] Trigger Finger Surgery Information



Chuck,
I have had the surgery on both hands..I play the piano and was worried about
the same thing...On one hand I let it go TOOOO long and it took a while to
heal...the other one ,I was playing piano in 2 weeks...I'm battling one now
in my thumb,but the cortisone injections have helped...it's well worth
it.(the surgery)..take care and good luck...
