re: going through the basal joint surgery process - my story

He says to be careful that i don't bump into anything...should i choose to have this nerve blocker on the day of my surgery. Any opinions?

I never was offered this option. I went home with pain killers both times. I think others on here did have that.
Good luck honey!!
