Hi just wondered if anyone has any advice?
I've been suffering from hand pain for a number of months. My consultant thinks I may have RA. My RF is 29, mri arthrogram showed fluid on my hand/wrist, wear and tear along with space between my radius and thumb (if that makes sense?). Im on the waiting list to see a rheumatologist and have been booked in for another MRI as the last scan was unclear.
Is it possible I could need an operation to repair any damage caused. If so, do I need to wait until I see the rheumatologist or can the orthopedic surgeon make the necessary arrangements beforehand?
