Customer Question

I have Dupytron's disease in my right hand little finger.
JA: How long have you had the disease? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: I have had it for 2 or 3 years but it has worsened over the last months.
JA: Got it. Have you seen a doctor about the disease?
Customer: I cannot reach my GP by phone or email, thus I have contacted you. I recognise the problem as I had an operation on my left hand in 2007.
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No

I can't reach my GP by phone or online & I have Dupytron's. What should I do?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I am confused. Am I still on the NHS? £34 for a phone call to offer advice?
Expert:  RickD810 replied 13 days ago.

Can you send me pics?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
No!
Expert:  RickD810 replied 13 days ago.

To get a formal diagnosis it would be better that I see some pics.

If you cannot sent pics then I would advise that you see your GP for a formal diagnosis and be referred to a plastic surgeon for surgical correction.

Unfortunately yor GP is the only way you can get this corrected or else you may need to look at the private referral route
