I've had carpal tunnel before in my wrist but didn't have to have surgery. Went to the doctor and had to wear a brace all the time for about 2 weeks and that along with some medication cleared it up. But, I caught it early on also.

Thanks! I have a brace, but I can't get used to it. I don't want surgery, but I'm afraid it's that bad already.

Hopefully you won't!! I hated the brace that I had - it always had a horrible smell because it would make my arm sweat really bad causing it to itch. Hang it there and I hope it starts to get better. I know it's painful!

I didn't have the surgery. But I did switch to a macbook and use the track pad and huge difference. I am shocked at the difference. My carpel tunnel was very severe too.

I had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands about a year ago and I highly recommend it. I messed around with a brace for awhile, which didn't help....had a cortisone shot which helped a little but my dr just said that the surgery was a piece of cake so might as well just do it and stop dealing with it. I don't have ANY pain or numbness whatsoever anymore. I can't even find the scars on my wrists anymore, they healed so well. The surgery was a piece of cake....they knock you out and when you wake up you have nothing more than a bandaid on. My sister waited WAY TOO LONG to have her surgery and she had already caused permanent nerve damage by waiting too long so she lost mobility in her thumb. I didn't mess around and as soon as the dr. suggested it, I went for it. I did not wait to the point of damaging nerves. I am a big advocate for CT release surgery. Whenever I hear anyone talk about it, I say go for it....

This was one of my hands when I came home from surgery:
