Surgery Tuesday

Recommended Posts

Well, Tuesday I am getting my left arm worked on. Carpal tunnel and nerve damage in the elbow area. So they are going to do both at the same time. They say it will stop deterioration and hopefully will restore full use. Will be off work for at least 2 weeks and no lifting over 5 pounds til the end of October. See you guys in a couple days as when I get anesthetized I usually drool on myself the rest of the day!

Good Luck DeaconKC. I need similar work done in my right wrist. Going to see another hand specialist tomorrow. 
 

I was actually scheduled for my surgery in July 2019, but a young lady hit me with her car while riding my bike on the freeway. Kind of had to put things off a bit. ;)

 

I will say a little prayer for you.

One of my fellow nurses had both wrists done for carpal tunnel.
Afterward she had full use, no problems, she absolutely loved the outcome!
Here's hoping you'll have a similar success!
(I tend to hedge my bets. I'll be standing up on my knees for you as well as throwing good thoughts your way!)

Prayer for full quick recovery. Since you are limited to five pounds lifting means you wont be able to order an Australian beer.
