I have a nerve study tomorrow and will be talking to my specialist afterwards about the possbility of surgery. He thinks I may have a combo of carpal tunnel and cubital (ulnar/elbow) tunnel syndromes in my fretting hand. And it looks like it's past time for conservtive treatments. I had the surger on my right/strumming hand in 2008 but that was long before I was playing guitar.
I keep trying to tell myself that it will be worth it in the long run if it's successful but I'm really bummed out about having to take so long of a break from playing. I will still be a little sponge and watch lessons like crazy and starting writing my own songs as well though.
Has anyone played after carpal tunnel sugery in either hand? I'd love to hear anyone's experience even though I completely understand that everyone's situation is differnt.
