I'm an oseteoarthritis patient contemplating a basal thumb joint replacement on my left hand. I've tried cortisone injections, splints and antiinflamatory meds. The pain is getting worse and really restricting my quality of life. I am a golfer and am wondering if any other golfers have had this procedure.

Hey there CEJ.. welcome to the forum.. I am not a golfer, but wanted to extend my welcome to you anyway.. I'm sure there are many here on this forum that have had this type of procedure done, and they will be along shortly to share their stories.. again welcome, and hope to see more of you on the boards..
