I've been diagnosed with carpal bossing on my left hand. I'm due to see a hand specialist next month to discuss surgery as I am in pretty constant pain from it at the moment. I've been doing a bit of research on the net and it has often been written that carpal bossing is a sign of osteoarthritis.
I was wondering if (if this is correct) it is likely that surgery will 'cure' the problem, or whether the arthritis will return? I use my hands frequently for work and although it is my non-writing hand affected at the moment, my right hand is showing signs of a carpal boss.
Just feeling a bit out of my depth as I thought (foolishly) that only older people got arthritis and I don't know who to talk to as my friends don't seem to appreciate that it's difficult for me to do things when I am in pain.
