    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I have this, and I need surgery. I can't afford the copays for the surgery. It's already been 5 months since the onset. I've been told that if I don't correct this soon, the condition could become permanent. Is this true?

    Here's a pretty good link. Not sure if you've already checked it out, though. Hope it helps some.....Take care....Oh, have you tried the splint and cortisone injections already? If not, I would definately do that first before surgery.
