Yes, back in '83. Had both done at the same time. Got it when working @ a packing house. Will say it was the best thing to do.
Back then they cut ya from 1" up your arm from the wrist to the middle of the hand.

I have not but of course I know a number of people who have - most of them have been geriatric - late 70's or 80's although I do know several younger of people who have had that procedure as well only one of whom is a golfer.  (He's around 60)  - His procedure was last spring - I don't think he's resumed playing golf yet but he's also a minor league umpire and doesn't play much golf in the summer - not our prime season in Florida - I think he's planning to resume playing after the baseball season is over.

 

Best wishes for your surgery when it comes up - if you'd like PM me at that time and I'll keep you in my prayers.  They help - not mine specifically but prayer in general. :)

I've got carpal tunnel problems in my left hand, but the ulnar nerve damage in my left arm is so bad that I can't feel the discomfort in the hand too much. (Thanks for letting me box, mom and dad!)

 

That did a number on my handicap too, if you can imagine.

 

But screw that.  Best of luck with your procedure, pulledabill.  The MGS community is in your corner.

I have not had a problem with Carpal Tunnel, but my wife has.  She had surgery on her right (dominant) hand in 1995.  She could have had the other one done too, but has lived with it all these years.  Why?  Because she said getting her right hand done actually improved her left hand.  She will have the other one done later this year, maybe next year.  She only has a little feeling in her left hand, and It does affect her golf game.

 

She mentioned that she would never do both hands at the same time; too many things related to personal hygiene that are difficult.  She recommends getting the dominant hand done first, then the other one if both are needed.

 

I'm sure that the procedure is standardized now, but when she had hers done in 1995, an orthopedic would make a long cut from the wrist to the palm.  She had hers done by a plastic surgeon, and only had a very small incision.

My hands & arms were completely numb. It felt like when you cutoff circulation & have that tingle feeling. Mine were like that 24 hrs a day. Surgery is to go in reroute the tendons & such to relieve that.
Mine was so bad & couldn't hold the Doc's finger in my hand & the electricity test showed no signal was getting through.

Good buddy of mine had surgery about a year ago. Both wrists. Everything went great; now has full good feeling in both hands. Don’t put stuff like this off, people. Your symptoms will get worse, not better. Let the doctors do their work.

Working in an automotive assembly plant, I've known at least four people to have this surgery ranging in age from 23 to 50. Each time it helped, but one guy only regained 95 percent usage. That is still better than suffering what you're going through.

Best of luck to you, I hope that it stops your pain.
