Middle Finger (http://azbilliards.com/vbulletin/upload/attachment.php?attachmentid=3878&stc=1)
My middle finger is getting whacked tomorrow. Actually, my palm will be cut up so my surgeon can make some incissions to the three pulleys locked-up on my middle-finger's tendon.
I have a trigger-finger and my right hand has lost most of it's grip strength. Bet, you didn't know the middle finger is good for other things too. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

Good luck to you with the surgery. I have been dealing with basal joint arthritis . /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif http://www.e-hand.com/hw/hw003.htm

Hi Joey,

Hope this isn't going to be painful and you can return to playing once again. Is this finger on your grip hand? Please let us know if everything went well and how long before everything is expected to come back to normal.

Regards,

C.C.

CC, I'm righty.
Last May they my left middle finger was operated on as well. Very odd that both middle-fingers developed the same exact problem. My surgeon says he's not shocked.
He said he's seen some people have it on almost all fingers.

Joey-

I had this same exact surgery!!! I had problems with my right middle finger. Did they try a cortizone injection first? They tried it with me (cost $250!!!) and my finger felt great for about three days, and then it got stiff and started locking again. It only took 3 months before my hand was entirely back to normal... I hope everything goes well for you!

I sorry Joey when I saw pool-related, I thought you were having Brain Surgery to have a pool brain installed. It is totally different from a real brain. I know because I have one.

As Albany Harry would say you trip up the stairs, drop the phone,put the cue between your legs falling down the stairs and then run 100 balls. ####

Thanks B.
I'll keep everyone posted.
Cheese, I had that cortizone shot as well in the left hand.
Hell, it was more painful than the surgery. It was fine for a few days and it locked up again.

In what part of Philadelphia do they talk like that?

I'm going to send Ms Rakin out there to teach the ladies
on the NEWT tour, how to play.
She won 4 out of 5 on Julie Hunter's tour last year...and how do you top that?? She went
5 for 5 this year,first time it's ever been done.
Seriously, I would like to see her play on a second Women's Tour...

<font color="blue">To top that, you have State Championships that are open to the WPBA Touring pros and watch Karen Corr, Julie Kelly, Gerda Hofstatter, Kim Shaw, Tiffany Nelson, and Dawn Hopkins walk in to spoil (or augment) your fun! But congrats to Michelle, that's pretty impressive!!</font color>

<font color="blue">Then send her East Baby!! Especially for a State Championship because for only $50 she can play any and all of the aforementioned players! Even me!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif</font color>

Guys, I just had it done. My right hand is bandaged.
Everything went really well. The anaesthesialogist was very good. He knocked me out for 5 minutes so wouldn't feel pain while my hand was being injected. I was awake when the surgeon was cutting my palm. After two cuts, my trigger-finger was released.
I drove home.
Bandage gets taken out come Monday. I might learn one-handed 1-pocket for a few days. /ccboard/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

I was recently diagnosed with a trigger finger myself, left hand pinky... never heard of such a thing before. I guess it sort of locks up until the tendons slip off the knuckle. Fortunately not so serious for me... just an irritation. Wish you all the best for your surgery.

I asked my doctor wahat causes such a thing. His reply, "being born in 1948." ...thanks doc/ccboard/images/graemlins/crazy.gif ...Bob
