Quote from: Fay on Nov 30, 2019, 17:47:10Next door we have new neighbours moving in. they have eliminated the fully grown oak tree. it was in its finest colours. not happy. we had had it trimmed a couple of times as I could not see polaris. it was not protected. he knew i was unhappy about it. i sent him a letter suggesting the council have a look and make a decision, he did not answer. I am sure they would have protected it, but it could still have been pruned. it was around 200 years old.......i will now have a view NW. imaging from the East i would always have to calculate how many exposure i could do before camera went into the oak. having said all this, i would much prefer the tree was still there. it put up a hell of a fight and took two weeks to complete the task.Fay
Quote from: FayOh gosh Mark. do you know I think I may have the same thing. I have a hard lunp on my palm that is connected to the ring finger but finger a are fine at the moment. doctor said it is something that only men usually get. was yours like that|?
Quote from: MarkS on Dec 02, 2019, 07:36:47I have my own doldrums which means I won't be using my observatory for a while. Two weeks ago I had surgery on my left hand for Dupuytren's Contracture - the ring finger and little finger were at right angles to the palm. The procedure included full depth skin grafts on the affected fingers, which were taken from my arm. I was awake during the surgery which was quite a surreal experience.Mark

Quotedoctor said it is something that only men usually get.
Quote from: MarkS on Dec 02, 2019, 09:23:02That's exactly how it starts. It may or may not develop into a string of lumps that begin to contract the finger inwards. It is more common in men than women. My own case is particularly aggressive - it started at a relatively young age (before I reached 50) and I've already had surgery on the same hand. But the problem returned. Plus, both hands are now affected. That's the reason I've been given the full depth skin graft this time - it minimises the risk of recurrence. But the recovery period is much longer.Next year I need to have the same procedure on my right hand.Mark
Quotedo you know the name of it or why it happens?
