hi I have just had diagnos of advanced arthritis in my trapezium bone and all fingers. The trapezium bone I'd growing out to the side. I am now unable to undo jars, open some door handles, take cooking out of the oven as my grip is now so poor. Constant pain for which I am taking tramadol four times a day. I have had the clinical assesssment and will be seeing consultant next week with the view of having surgery. The operation is not that horrific ( watched it on u tube) what I want to know is if you have had this operation would you go through it again? Did it stop the pain. I know that it is unlikely that you will be able to grip etc.
