Thank you for starting a conversation on carpal tunnel syndrome and the tunnel release procedure. We have many members who have discussed having carpal tunnel, but did not have a central discussion focused on carpal tunnel.

I would like to invite @allisonsnow, @dawn_giacabazi, @johnbishop, @kyjeanne, @IndianaScott, to this conversation as they have all been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. I would also like to invite @irene5 who may be able to share some insights on carpal tunnel surgery.

@bernese53, you mentioned your surgery is scheduled at Mayo Clinic Rochester, were you able to address some of your concerns with your schedules surgeon? While we wait for others to join the conversation, how long did your physician say the recovery might be or what sort of rehab will you need to do?

My surgeon told me that the procedure was “routine”….maybe for him but definitely not for me. No rehab is necessary and recovery time “varies”. I did not pursue many questions with him. Mostly I was in a state of disbelief hearing that I had carpal tunnel syndrome and would need surgery!

@bernese53, I had carpal tunnel surgery on one wrist only (because it was the worst) 6 years ago. It helped greatly, but I have it again in that wrist and have always had it in the other. I see my chiropractor regularly, and he adjusts my wrists each time. It helps for awhile, but it doesn’t last. I’m glad I had the decision to have the surgery on my right wrist, because it was unbearable at the time and has never gotten as bad as it was then.
