Yesterday I noticed DD's middle & ring finger on her left hand seem to get stuck and then snap open when she's grabbing for something. She's 19 months old. I think she might have "trigger finger." We have a doc appointment today, but was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with this. How do you treat it? I keep reading that surgery is possible in severe cases- what's considered "severe?" Is is something that could possibly just go away on its own?
My daughter had trigger thumb. She couldn't unbend her thumb at all. She had surgery about a year ago (age 3) and it has been fine since
Surgery was a breeze. No complications or anything.
I'd talk to the pedi and get a referral to a hand surgeon or a peds ortho
Surgery seems so scary!!! Especially if she's in a lot of pain afterwards :(
Quoting Samerra's Momma:" Surgery seems so scary!!! Especially if she's in a lot of pain afterwards :("
it really isn't a huge deal. I think it took longer to put Cora to sleep than it did for the actual surgery lol
And I think I onnly gave one or two doses of tylenol afterwards. She never complained of pain
It was wrapped tight for about 6 weeks. Then the bandages were taken off and everything was back to normal. No PT or anything
