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.
