Hello, My name is Jeff and I am almost 26. I have the beginnings of Carpal Tunnel. This is no real surprize to me because I use my hands all day at work as an electricain and I enjoy alot of outdoor activities like rock and ice climbing. My doc says that I am really to young to have the surgery but he also says that at this point I have no nerve or muscle damage and with the way mine is progressing in a few years I may develope permanent damage. This already has interfered with my work abilities and has lowered my confidence in climbing and aiding others in climbing. I am affraid that if I get the surgery that it will return and I know once a surgery is done once the second time is more difficult and less sucessful. I have tried the braces with little affect. I love my work and more my hobbies. I think if I want to continue my lifestyle I have to have it done. But I don't want to jump the gun and get it done too soon. If anyone has anything to tell me, good or bad I would love to hear it. I like to have as much information about something before I make my decisions.
Thank you, Jeff
