I was diagnosed with Dupuytren’s in 1994. I had a palmar fasciectomy in 2005 on the left hand which failed and resulted in amputation of my little finger in 2008. In 2011 I had a more extensive palmar fasciectomy on the right hand which has also failed. The little and ring finger of my right hand are fully contracted and the ring finger on my left is about 30% contracted and all are getting worse. Do you have data on how your treatments can reverse this condition and that of surgery, needle treatments and Xiaflex?
Are your treatments accepted by insurance companies? Mine, Molina, even denied covering Xiaflex, which I am fighting.
PS: I am very familiar with DMSO having used it on horses for years and would be open to trying it.
Sorry to hear of your bad results with Dupuytren’s hand surgery and Xiaflex injections. Unfortunately, your experience is more common than what you might imagine. Please see Dupuytrens Surgery Did Not Go Well and When to have Dupuytren surgery? Worsening of Dupuytren’s contracture is not uncommon after DC hand surgery, regardless if your Dupuytren’s surgery was initially successful or not.
As I have repeatedly written here on this DCI website, I am not able to produce data and research results like a multi-billion drug company that controls patient drug intake and has the ability to monitor outcomes. I can only report what people tell me after they have been on their program for a while.
For every 10-12 reports of success and positive results while following a reasonably aggressive DCI treatment plan I get one report of failure or lack of positive results. This is a good ratio, especially when you consider how people like to complain as opposed to give compliments and offer thanks.
However, you ask about reversal of bad results of Dupuytren surgery. That is something you should have asked your various surgeons before they removed so much normal tissue from your hands, and injected enzymes to dissolve tissues in your hand. Unfortunately you are asking too much of your body to think that taking any kind of superior nutritional program could possibly make new tissue grow back after a surgeon removed it. It simply cannot be done. At this point I think you should be interested in simply making the best of a very bad situation.
Since you have had such poor results with what you have tried so far I suggest that you be most conservative from this point forward. I have never had anyone tell me of any adverse or unexpected results from the work we do here. Please consider trying this approach to see if you can at least slow down some of the contraction that is going on in your hands. At this time I think you do not have much to lose. TRH
