Well, I went to the hand specialist today, and I am indeed a candidate for carpal tunnel surgery, on both hands. I was afraid that he would say that it wasn't bad enough to do surgery, despite the fact that I drive switching hands as they become numb, make phone calls the same way, and find some acts of normal hygiene very painful. Dr. Novak was very nice and easy to talk to, and I really seemed to relate well to him. I am so excited by the prospect of getting some pain relief that I am having the first hand done next Monday. I have not felt well today, though. I keep having headaches and I feel like the range of motion in my neck has lessened, at least the pain free range. I fear and kind of hope that neck surgery is in my future, if it would reduce the pain.
Well, have to help get the kids off to bed.
