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?
No. Dupuytren's is a hereditary disease and has nothing to do with the toe amputation.
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.
If you had. An injury, it sounds like that was the cause. I don't believe there is a link.
