I am 44 I work in a supermarket ive had 4 children youngest is 2.So cant rest my thumbs at all My job is quite heavy work lifting ripping up card lifting when scanning. Also struggling to lift my 2 year old. Struggling to do basic things lifting kettle turning door handles etc.Ive had injection in theatre under xray which has no worn off.Only lasted 5 weeks. The pain wakes me up at night. At work this evening my thumb locked for a couple of hours was agony then it clicked and was ok .My surgeon said he can operate but with having a young child he would rather wait as I would need a cast for 6 weeks.I have a hospital appointment next week to see how the cortisone injection has gone. Just wondering what type of surgery is best does anyone have any advice please. This is really affecting my whole life.Sick of being on constant pain. At the doctors tomorrow for co codamol I can't cope with this anymore
