For all fellow golfers affected with this contracture, also known as the Viking's disease and quite common in Canada. "http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/dupuytrens-contracture/basics/definition/con-20024378"

Got it in both hands for the last 10 years or so. Did not bother me that much as it does not hurt. Until ... I started yoga and  discovered I could not have my hands flat on the floor (significant other thought I was cheating)  .... discovered that it was easier to clap on my quadriceps with my hand to cheer and applause ... holding the mouse started to be a problem, which is a problem when computer is your bread and butter.

Right hand was "done" last year. Left hand was "done" two weeks ago. Invasive surgery both times, there are other options but surgery seems to be the one with more success and less "come backs". In both cases I had an amazing experience at Montfort's hospital, amazing teams, very close to the patient and very supportive. As I said, left hand was done two weeks ago tomorrow. Did not expect that but was downhill skiing last week end and tomorrow I am hitting golf balls at Ben Franklin.

Do not hesitate to PM me if you need additional info. 

Bring on the 2015 season.

Fore.

Thanks Jerome.  Have to say this is new to me but significant in the fact that screening for physical issues always important for a golf rpo and students.  Definitely will check out the link.  Glad you are back at physical activities already.
