I've had surgeries for bi-lateral carpal tunnel, tendon/finger release for trigger fingers x8. I understand that I have chronic tendonitis and synovitis. Had removed one nodule, but developed 4 more. Some people have it more severe than others...

Hi: Thought I might find a group for this here. Just diagnosed, have a hand surgeon meeting in two weeks. One little nodule, cords in the other hand and pain on occasion. My ring fingers do not bend and are curving in a bit but nothing severe yet. I kept running to doctors trying to get some diagnosis out of them, and somehow found a description that told me this is what I have and since I am diabetic....well.....oh well....

I have it on both hands and feet. It is not a complication, but a predisposition to connective tissue disorders.

Has anyone used a natural therapy to help with dupuytrens?

Hi,
Wow, so glad to find you guys. Felt like I was the only one! Type 1 for 43 years. Dupuytrens in both hands, all fingers and feet. No surgery, just coping.

I have dupuytrens in both hands and carpal tunnel. Got surgery, no problems for a few years now.
