I recently had a toe amputated after an injury and have now got dupuytrens in my right hand, could there possibly be a link to my toe amutation?

In brief: No

Dupuytren's is a hereditary disease and has nothing to do with the toe amputation.

In brief: NO

There isn't a "link" between the two, but your original injury may have produced the set of circumstances that lead to the contracture.

In brief: If you had

An injury, it sounds like that was the cause.
I don't believe there is a link.
