: I would like to hear from people who has had Carpal tunnel release surgery.Please gimme me a description of the procedure,your recovery time and did it help. I am doing research and I'm seriously contemplating surgery

I had the surgery on my right hand 2 yrs ago,and my left 3 weeks ago. It is worth having because the burning pain I had went away. It takes 6 weeks until you can fully use your hand and 1 full year to see the real results. I have no true strength in my right hand meaning I can't open tight jars,carry heavy items,etc...i also cant write for very long and my writing is not what it was. but,if you don't have to surgery, eventually you will have too much damage to do it and will lose the use of your hand.

Carol
