Well, there is no reason to be scared. I have CTS in BOTH of my hands and had surgery on both,also. When you go to the doctor they will probably do an EMG. This is to test the nerves in your hands to see how much damage there is.It isn't as bad as people make you think.I was actually alittle more uncomfortable AFTER the test.I wish you luck and don't be nervous.
