Thumb problems


Back to Contributions

1st May, 2003

I have just read Val Needham's letter and her story is very similar to mine (see First successful thumb joint replacement in NZ - by Valerie Needham). Alas, my GP says take anti inflammatory tablets and no more. These have terrible side effects...so I would like to contact the Melbourne surgeon mentioned in her letter.

I find it interesting that the other doctors I have spoken with seem to avoid the issue of wear and tear from being a musician.
