I was diagnosed with CTS a little over two years ago. Used braces and just about every over-the-counter pain reliever there is. I got better for a while. About 3 months ago I started haver the most severe pain I had ever had in my hand, wrist and arm. I started having to wear my brace after work and all night again. Now I have to wear my brace even while I work. I have an appt with a surgeon on 4-24-00 and am scared to death. I am a cake decorator and there is no way I can still do my job with the production rate expected. My employer knows that I am seeing a surgeon. I'm just afraid that they will try to find a reason to fire me to keep from paying for everything. I can not afford the surgery myself. Any feedback would be appreciated.Worried in Texas.
