    have osteo (sp) arthritis in my thumbs pretty bad. can fix thu operation....runs $2000- $7000 PER THUMB :wow: . will get final apprx. price in a few days.
    would be in a hard cast , for each thumb , for 4 weeks and no lifting with the hand that was worked on. would have use of fingers . followed by 7- 8 nweeks of therapy.

    any one ever had this done and what was the outcome ?? !!
    i did have carpal tunnel done on each hand , by same surgeon, 2c years ago and all is better with that problem now.

    any type of vitamins or natural herbs i can take to help this condition ?
    :dunno:

    Listen to your doctor and not to us.

    please read all i wrote.
    i AM paying attention to my doctor however i wanted to hear from anyone else who has had this similar or exact problem and how they turned out after surgery OR even if they went thru with the surgery.

    also possibly there are some natural products marketed that could possibly help and if anyone has tried this approach also
