Both of my hands are contracted fingertip to palm. My third finger on my left hand is digging into my palm. My hand surgeon and I have decided to straighten both my index and middle finger via a Proximal Interphalangeal (PIP) fusion surgery. I'm a bit nervous about healing afterwards as I have severe Raynaud's. Anyone else gone down this road and have advice, tips?

Welcome to these forums!
Thankfully I've not had the problem you describe, but I have included a link to another thread on Raynaud's and Surgery which I hope will give you some more information.
I've also included a link to our medical pages on Raynaud's.
