"I had trigger right thumb they relocated the position of tendon in out-patient surgery that was 15 years ago. My thumb would lockup and it was very apinfull to unlock it. Since the surgery no problem."
"I was diabetic for almost 20 years before my first trigger finger - I have had 4 surgeries since then. The first two were very close together - the second one happened after I saw the ortho guy for the first time. I tried cortisone on the first two…"
"I've had three trigger fingers operated on (two thumbs and ring finger on right hand). The first one to act up was my left thumb. I got a cortisone shot, and it went away, and miraculously didn't have a problem with it for another 6 years.…"
Nice to meet you Dman. I am now in Thailand. I have a brother with D Type 1 in Ethiopia. I wanted to send him a glycometer and a delivery machine but do not know good specification. I myself am not diabetic as such But have levels of 108 and that puts me on the candidacy hehehe. I am glad you contacted me. Keep intouch
WOW - I am absolutely amazed !!! What are the chances of meeting someone with type 1, diagnosed in Africa.....I love to ride, last weekend we went up to OCC - in Newburg - ? have you been there ? Its great. We talked to people who were on their way back from bike week in Lake George. We went to bike week two years ago in Myrtle Beach. We have a trailer for the bike ! Yes we stop often, too. Bear Mountain is close to us. We live in Butler and I work in Allendale, NJ. Do you have many friends to ride with ? I am constantly amazing people who work in the gas stations - Hess...they all seem to come from Kenya and I shock them by speaking Swahili to them !!! What language did you speak in Ethopia? Is it Arab based ? Do you have any pictures of your bike.
I have had D for 55 years and I am amazed that I am still alive !!! Do you have any problems with D. ?
My name is Sheila. My husband and I have a Harley. We live in Northern New Jersey. I have had diabetes for 55 years. I wear the MM pump with CGM system and find it excellent on the bike. Just a quick glance while riding lets me know exactly where my BG's are. Have never had a problem with D and riding. We don't, of course, like to "bar-hop" like a lot of bikers do and we are looking for people in the area to ride with.
