9 months ago I had a CMC arthroplasty with LRTI & at the same time a PIP joint replacement of my middle finger . The support i have had from them surgeon, physio & occupational therapy team has been second to none. But- the pain I have still continues. I was diagnosed with CRPS at a fairly early stage but cannot believe that CRPS can cause so much pain. My hand is stiff, I cannot make a fist & my thumb area is constantly painful. I feel as though I must have done something to delay the healing. I don't know what to do to ease the pain. It is affecting daily life from morning & very badly at night. The pip replacement was so straight forward - I hardly had pain from it but the arthroplasty is awful. Any suggestions?
