I had my carpol tunnel sugery last Mon. 18th. So far I am experiencing more trouble than before i had the sugery. You would think after a week I would have some relief. I'm all bruised on my arm and stomach from part of this. Sure hope I will get the results I deserve.

I have had 2 surgeries on each hand to fix pain in thumb joints. That is a total of 4 surgeries and they have all failed. Dr. Fitz suggested each hand needed an additional surgery....I declined and went to another doctor.
