I used to touch type but since I developed
deputyns (sp) contraction in left hands fingers are not always as they
Duputreyns, both hands here. Left hand was part sorted in 2012 with
some Xiapex but they did not treat a couple of nodules which have got worse.
Right hand now affected as well. Hoping the latter can be sorted by
Xiapex but I am told the left hand will be surgery this time around.
I've not heard of Xiapex, is it new?
Ray had it in both hands but the right was by far the worst. It functioned
well as a hook to hang shopping bags on but putting them down again was
tricky. He had surgery (the consultant was not impressed by my suggestion
of amputation - I was serious, it got in the way) which did free up the
third finger but the little finger curled up again in a few years. The left
hand didn't really get any worse.
Apparently it runs in families. Ray's #1son had nodules - haven't seen him
for a few years so don't know if it has got worse.
