Not a happy outcome. Good luck to all of you who are considering surgery.
I am sorry you had to go through so much and continue to be in pain now. I am in your position now. No pain but very bad carpal tunnel. My 2 fingers are numb at the tips.
I am seeing my neuroligist/surgeon (it is late and I can't spell) on Wednesday and if he wants to operate I feel like I would like at least like to discuss your case with him, if that that is aright.
Thank you for sharing
