De Quervain tenosinovitis slow recovery
23 January '14 | 3:07pm
I was diagnosed with De Quervain about 4 months ago. It happened while windsurfing and i felt it immediately.
The thing is that i didn't treat it until about 2 months later when it persisted and actually got worse. I went to 2 orthopedists who both told me that the only way out is cortisone injection and if that does not work then surgery which is supposed to be really fast and simple. I did the injection which had no positive effects and am treating with physio and acupuncture. I'm also using a wrist support for a month now but i really don't see big improvement.
I'm in doubt regarding the surgery, should i do it or not?

As all of us here, i'm addicted to the sport and being for 4 months out of the water kills me.

Any one had this in the past?
thanks a lot
