Im set up to go the surgeon on Monday. Can some of the folks thats had it done tell me what to expect? Did you have the traditional or endoscopic procedure and what was your recovery time? Ive been living with it for about 8yrs but I cant take it anymore.

Good luck, lots of people I know have had it.
Some say it is awesome, some say it made no difference.

When I had a nerve test to see where the surgeon screwed me up, part of it was the same test they do for carpel tunnel.
Number one, I was shocked I didn't have it.
Number two, that test HURT !!!!


Good luck man.

Go to a neurosurgeon. No one I know that had a neuro do it has had any problems and had a quick, 2-4 week recovery. The 3 that had it done by an ortho took longer to heal and 2 have had to have another surgery.

1)Take your pain meds as soon as you leave hospital!!!!!!
2)keep hand elevated
3)keep bandage dry and clean for two weeks
4)get stitches out
5)exercise hand (physical therapy)
My hand was pretty tender for the first couple of months,but feels great.No more numbness or tingling. It been about eight months now,so far so good. good luck!!!



P.S. DON'T FORGET YOUR PAIN PILLS!!!!!
