I developed DC some years ago and despite one operation to straighten a finger it returned leaving that finger bent by about 45 degrees.
I've decided to live with it and seek no further treatment as I felt that the surgery gave only a temporary resolution to the problem and the scar tissue that built up around the operation site made the finger more difficult to move that before the op and despite the contracture.
Over the last couple of years the thickening of the tissues in my hand has slowly progressed but is only affecting the tissues connected to the one affected finger and causes me no real issues other than some discomfort in the palm if I'm using a tool that sits in the palm and I push down on it.
As I said previously, I'm prepared to live with the discomfort rather than seek more surgery which if anything gives only a temporary solution however, I have a question that some may be able to answer "when if ever does it stabilise and progress no further and has anyone experienced the condition affecting the tissues in their wrist or causing discomfort in the wrist.
