Carpal Tunnel Surgery, 3 on my left, 2 on my right, wrist pain is now worse

by Jeff
(Oakville Ontario)

Hello i have been off work now for 1.5 years from CTS working as a welder/blaster/painter/train repair, and still even though i have went through 3 surgerys 1 on my left and 2 on my right there is no change it is worse.

The doctors tell me it is from scar tissue on the nerve, and they cant remove it anymore because it will grow back.

I have been waking up 4-5 times a night no sleep like mabey 2-3 hours a night.

After my second surgery on my right hand i got an infection from what i dont know, and the pain is all the time i have these shocks that go through my hand once and while but they cause pain.

I just got my other nerve test done Nov 8 2009 and it has come back severe carpal tunnel syndrome, my readings are in the 6.8 up to 7.5 all down the board on both hands.

Going to see my doctor on the 16 to see what were going to do, ill keep you posted.

Hi Jeff. Thanks for sharing.

That sounds like a lot of wasted time, effort, money, and pain. Ouch.

I predict the doctors are either going to say there's nothing more they can do, or they are going to suggest something even more drastic.

You illustrate the point I make about surgery very well, the simple concept that surgery damages the body, and the body lays down scar tissue to heal itself.

And, you may want to consider supplementing with Bone Broth as the best Tendon Supplements, and Magnesium.

And in that you've had a significant Process of Inflammation for a long time, it may be of interest to you that Inflammation Causes Vitamin B6 Deficiency.

After your experience with surgeries that didn't work, I'm curious if your doctors will look towards a nutritional aspect to your symptoms, or start looking at that possibly your symptoms are coming from up at your neck and front of chest/shoulders.

Please do give us all an update on what the doctors say. I am very curious.

Carpal Tunnel Symptoms after 6 months of Blasting at a train repair place
by: Anonymous

Hi there, I also work at a train repair place. I blast and have been doing so for bout 6 months. I never had any problems with my hands/arms prior to this and have plenty of pain in hands and arms.

I been diagnosed with carpal tunnel in both hands and tennis elbow in both arms. How does one get this from 6 months of this work and others have no problems thats done this type of work for years?

ALso i have developed 3 cyst on my right wrist atleast thats what dr. said they was the second time. first time said they was the blood vessels balloning out.


Joshua Comments:

Hi Blast.

The doctors can't tell if it's blood vessels ballooning our or if it's a cyst?


So, why do you have Carpal Tunnel Symptoms after 6 months and others don't?

Who knows. Maybe you're more nutrient deficient than they are. Maybe your posture is worse for any number of reasons and are therefore predisposed to having constriction of the nerve up at the front of the neck and front of chest/shoulder.

Maybe unconsciously your use/squeeze your forearm muscles WAY harder than everybody else, or maybe you have a history of activity that set you up for this.

I'd have to know more to have any kind of opinion.

6 months of rigorous repetitive motion can easily cause, create, and/or increase a Pain Causing Dynamic which is resulting in your symptoms.
