... Hi Tammy, I just read your posts and wanted you to know that at least someone was reading and with empathy for your situation. I've had the open carpal tunnel release surgery done on both hands twice, the first in 1988 (yeah, I'm kinda old! ;) ) after the birth of my first child, and again in 2001.

... ntodd. I've had both hands done. Right hand was done in 1993 and it healed well. Haven't had a problem with it, though the EMG done in Sept of 2005 showed mild carpal tunnel. It's had to make up for my left hand since 1993 as I had severe carpal tunnel in both hands. ... (20 replies)

I'm right hand dominant and my right hand was worse so I chose to do the right hand first. For me the first week post-op was the worst as fingers hurt to do fine motor skills like pinching and grasping (buttons, zippers, etc). Week two was much better.... (7 replies)
