Hi all. My right hand has become quite badly deformed. My consultant says it's probably due to the fact that it took so long for Embrel to be permitted after trying other dmards. (Including mtx which I couldn't tolerate)
I am now on embrel/sulphasalazine which is hopefully going to be a good mix going forward. I am a piano teacher and find playing now quite difficult which is distressing and was wondering if anyone had had successful hand surgery?
I have been to see a hand surgeon but he put me off as he said it may improve the look but I would lose strength. My opinion is that it can't really be much worse than it is already. Anyone help or advise from experience?
