Question: what is de Quervain's tenosynovitis really?

Tenosynovaginitis: Yes, that word. It's a problem of the tendon, it's lining, and the sheath of one of the thumb tendons. They get irritated and enflamed. It's quite painful.

Later, it requires surgery. ...Read more

Can de Quervain's tenosynovitis come back after surgery?

Yes but unlikely: The operation for dequervain's involves decompressing the first extensor compartment of the wrist.
