: I have "had" CTS for approximately 18 years. I had it in both hands, but after having surgery on my right hand in 1984 I changed jobs to something easier on the hands. I still wear splints every night, but for the most part my symptoms are in abeyance and I only notice some minor swelling and soreness if I really abuse my hands.
: My question is this: My thenar muscles are still kind of wasted--my right hand in particular. I was never given any exercises or anything after my surgery. Is there anything that can counteract this atrophy, or is it just something that will always be with me?
: Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
