Hope it's not something I might need in the future.
Stone, my thoughts and prayers are with you on this one.

Shadowlady wrote: Mmm, my extensors wriggle over the knuckles on a couple of fingers too, you think that could be bad? Have done for years without any probs, but they've been getting sore doing that recently. Those fingers have gone very slightly twisty and grumpy. The tendons aren't subluxing at all tho, well, not like in those vids. Very minor issue I thought? Hmm. To show the Doc or not? I've no idea if there's anything he can do or if there's any protective/preventative things I can do? Had any advice for your other fingers at all?

Shadowlady wrote: The tendon does look quite a lot thicker than the ligament, so I guess it must be stronger? I quite liked the look of the surgery, not that I know anything about these things, but that weaving on the tendon back on itself, it did look... secure, strong, clever and neat.

I really hope it goes well for you, and that you manage to ease your fingers back into behaving themselves again.[...] Your work, it's very hands on? What kinds of activities do you do with it?
