I'm 56 years old, and have been playing for 50 years. My playing is the best it's ever been and I'm enjoying it so much that I've recently saved thousands of dollars to buy a good instrument.
This news has come as a real blow, particularly as I've already had to come to terms with how hearing loss has affected my enjoyment of music, particularly choral singing.
I'm hoping that someone will have some experience of treatment, particularly whether early surgical intervention might help me to keep playing longer, rather than waiting until my fingers are severely curled before any corrective treatment, which is the usual medical advice. I understand that people are wary of giving medical advice, but I'd appreciate any anecdotal descriptions of violinist's experience with this.
