I know someone who successfully treated it with a concoction of 1Tbsp apple cider vinegar + 1c unsweetened cranberry juice. Then again, it could have been the placebo effect but there is a certain body of research to support the anti-oxidants in these 2 ingredients helping out an inflammation problem like TF.How has anyone dealt with this???
What did the surgeon do to alleviate the problem?Trigger finger on both middle fingers. No kidding.
Started 2 years ago.
Frequent lockup and pain with the right hand middle finger got worse early last year.
I sought an ortho's help. He administered cortisone. It alleviated the pain but only for a couple of months.
After a two applications of cortisone, I opted to get surgery on it.
Three months post surgery, it was completely healed.
The left hand trigger finger isn't bad enough for surgery. It locks up occasionally but it is tolerable.
I won't hesitate to get the operation if it ever gets bad to the point like I had with the right hand middle finger.
What did the surgeon do to alleviate the problem?
Also, did you ever figure out the root cause or did your doc say it was more hereditary than anything else?
I ask because what if it comes back on the operated finger?
