TRIGGER THUMB

COULD YOU PLEASE HELP. I HAD AN OP ON MY RIGHT THUMB IN SEPT FOR TRIGGER THUMB - THE LIGAMENT MOVES AS I UNDER STAND IT - NOW MY LEFT THUMB IS STARTING ALSO. I REALLY DONT WANT TO GO THROUGH THAT AGAIN. WHEN IT STARTS CLICKING - I JUST MASSAGE THE BASE OF THE THUMB AND IT SEEMS TO CORRECT IT FOR A WHILE. ANY IDEAS HOW I CAN KEEP THE THUMB FROM PACKING UP TOTALLY ?
THANKS KARIEN
