I've had Dupetrine's contracture in my right hand for a number of years. It doesn't hurt and it doesn't affect my playing or any other activities. I went to a hand specialist about four years ago and he said that it wasn't to the point yet that he could do anything about it. It doesn't seem to be getting any worse so I'm just living with it. No biggie. I recently read that they now have a nonsurgical method of treating it with injections.
