The apparent diagnosis is: NODULAR STENOSING TENDINOSIS AT 4TH FLEXOR TENDON AND CALCIFICATION

Not sure what all that means, but I have a friend that had this and the tendons exploded and caused surgery and many other complications. I am not currently in contact with her, but will try to get more info. If it weren't for her I would have not paid much attention. Pain and swelling is pain and swelling. My Dr. wanted me to a hand surgeon today, but golf is important. I go on Tues and will find out if a Biox shot will work or if surgery is necessary. I cannot fathom dealing with either of them, but will let you know.

This is our year end close. Later she told me that I have to do what I have to do. I was so hurt by her initial reaction that I couldn't even respond. You bet I gotta do what I gotta do, company or not. My hands depend - on it my life depends on it.

Lets hope you wont need surgery. But if they say you do dont risk it. Tendon rupture in the fingers, as you say, is complicated and some times not easy to fix and return function. My right hand has tendonds rubbing against a bit of calcified spiky bone, that could be like a file to the tendons. My docs have recommended to stay very alert for any symptom, and that if they develop i need surgrry ASAP to prevent rupture. Actually they wanted me to have preventive surgery and i was doing it except i didnt have enough recovery time before travelling abroad to study. Then i broke my femur bone, twice, and im still recovering from it, then i probably need surgery to remove the large plate in my thight, then recover from that, then give myself some rest from all of taht recovering, then the hand, unless tendonds disagree

Let's hope you are at the stage that Botox will work. I am hearing more and more what these shots are being used for. Migraines as well. I intend to ask my Neuro about that. Migraines are in the head so maybe the shots will help and take care of wrinkles at the same time? Hey I can wish!

Good luck at your appt. I hope it goes as well as it can.
