Any CMC arthritis suffering skydivers out there? Can't Post

Besides me, that is? Frown

This is essentially arthritis of the base of the thumb, where the carpal and metacarpal bones join. Turns out the "tendinitis" I thought I had was arthritis...basically no cartilage, 40% subluxation of the metacarpal bone, significant calcification around the joint. I'm now trying to treat this aggressively, but I'm wondering if this has affected your skydiving ability? It's in (of course) my cutaway hand, so I'm a little concerned about the potential loss of strength and range of motion...and I've pretty much decided that my career as a TM is over. FrownFrownFrown

So, any tips/info/remedies/commiserating sob stories? I'd appreciate any feedback. Wink

Thanks,

Mike
