No I haven't seen the hand surgeon yet. I am just seeing whether or not surgery is even an option for these types of things. I asked my doc once if she could inject the finger because it was hurting so bad but she wouldn't do it. Her reasoning is that she wanted to treat the whole hand and not just the one finger. Now though the rest of my fingers are doing better except for that one middle one I may ask her again. Oh and I forgot that when I asked her, she had already injected the pointer finger of the left hand with steroid.
