I am going to resize them I think, but I'll wait until I know more from the Rhuematologist.
Many thanks for your replies and personal stories

I really missed wearing mine, too. They're a part of me and seem to make me feel hubby's with me, even when he isn't

I've not read any of the replies....so forgive me if this has been mentioned...
but a friend of mine with scleroderma had a ring designed for her that is like a coil that expands to her finger size. It is beautiful. The designer made a ring for me years ago that I adored. Her ring is like a double band, if that makes sense. I must be in good shape because my fingers are actually a lot smaller than they were five years ago and even my engagement ring from one year ago (yay, our anniversary is approaching) is loose. Hooray for Cellcept?

What I meant is that the swelling has gone down. I still have semi-sausage hands, but not nearly as bad as they used to be. I used to hide my hands.

My husband made an appointment for me at a Jeweler for our 4th anniversary to get my engagement ring band changed to an adjustible band. Its a band that has a hinge on it so I can get it off over my knuckle no matter how big it gets. It sort of opens up like a handcuff would...if you can picture that. The funny thing is that I can now pull it off without opening up the hinge, but who knows what tomorrow will bring. I hope this helps some of you who miss your rings!

My husband has had it sized but in less than a month, it needs to be made larger and I'm not going that route again.
One thing about sclero tho' it forces you to really appreciate what is truly important- love, support, family and good health.
