Share Your Carpal
Tunnel Surgery Stories
(and learn from other people's experiences)

This collection of Carpal Tunnel Surgery stories is for you.

If you have had any kind of wrist surgery for Carpal Tunnel, or are considering it, share your stories and read these stories to help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

Everybody has a significant to slightly different experience of surgery for CTS.  Some good, some bad.

What's important to keep an eye out for is HOW LONG any surgery benefits last AND how long recovery took.  Did a person have to recovery from the carpal surgery for 8 months and then -still- had pain and problem?

Were symptoms worse after surgery?  No difference but with extra pain from the injury surgery causes?


On This Page You'll Find....

On this page you'll find people talking about their surgery experiences (both leading up to and post-surgery), and you'll find questions people have about carpal tunnel problems and surgery.

If you share your experience, people facing surgery can learn from that and make better decisions about their care.


Carpal Tunnel Surgery is a serious undertaking, with possible risks and possible benefits.  Make sure that you know what you need to know about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - why you have symptoms, causes that surgery will never be able to help (like vitamin B6 deficiency), why symtpoms don't go away over time, etc.


So.  Have you had CTS surgery?  How was it?  How was recovery?  Did it help?  For how long?  Would you do it again (especially if there was a non-invasive way to get even better results)?

Inquiring minds want to know......
