I had bilateral endoscopic carpul tunnel surgery on both of my hands at the same time. I've since had a trigger finger on both of my hands and have had 2 cortizone shots on each of my hands.

On 12/16/2011 I had surgery on my left hand, and then on 2/17/2012, I had surgery done on my right hand & it has been such a wonderful thing for me. My hands are both somewhat weaker & I have some pain & tenderness, but I am still in the healing process. The surgery was a life saver for me.
Working / Worked
It been working, just use the computer in my job and personal. My stitches popped when I had the surgery, because I was not able to be in rotation in my job. I had to do the same job all the time.
Sorta, kinda. I think I waited to long for the surgery
