Kevin, Witch MD (Ha,Ha) are you seeing? Dr. Bob McGinley operated on my left wrist about seven years ago for Dequervane's (Sp.?) Disease. Call it what you will; it was a real pain! His description was that in or near the thumb joint, tendons or ligaments running through a hole in the bone become inflamed, therefore bind in the hole, causing pain. He reamed out the hole in the bone, allowing the tendons or ligaments more freedom. Now and then I feel some discomfort and apply an ice pack to provide relief. Also, I have been wearing a linked bracelet which has a small magnet imbedded in each of the appx. 20 links and I am convinced that this really helps keep down the pain. Someone mentioned accupuncture; I wouldn't object to trying that, myself. Let me hear from you!
