First thanks for welcoming me to the site. I am now on a V-go pump, numbers better, but having little issues. Trial and error kind of stuff I guess. reading about your trigger finger mad me less afraid to get the surgery myself. Had one cortisone shot thus far, helped some.
Just looking around on here trying to learn the navigation...etc.
Again thanks for the kind Welcome. Annamarie
