My husband has been diagnosed with RA and is dealing with it pretty well. Probably his biggest problem is his hands, which are very deformned and his right hand fingers are often dislocating. He had an operation on the right hand some time ago which was extremly painful on recovery and has not done any good at all so he is reluctant to return to the surgeon. Has anyone out there any advice on dealing with the pain and deformity. He still works and can still drive and hates taking pain killing drugs.
