Just wondering if any of you ladies had to have carpel tunnel surgery on your mastectomy surgery side and how you got along.
It looks like I have it in both hands, however, I was always told NOT to get shots, cuts, etc. on that side.  I did have the surgery on my non-surgery side in 1999.  Now, here I go again.
Oh yes, I also found out that I have a bone spur attached to my achilles tendon. That explains why I have had such pain in the foot all winter, along with numbness and freezing cold feeling.  Off to the ortho doctor I go AGAIN!  Hey..........I really feel blessed, don't mean to complain. SORRY! There are so many of you that are dealing with so much more. nono
Thanks for the help in advance about the carpel tunnel surgery!

Wow, that would be a concern I'd think.  I'd like to hear about that too. 
I know what you mean about thinking your problems aren't serious and others' are.  I've felt the same way many times since my cancer treatments ended.   I'm grateful, even, for the hemmoroid!
I've been noticing that we're here for each other through life's stuff that get's thrown at us.  I certainly get helped by Jo-Ann's coping style, MK's diplomatic, yet helpful, comforting and everyone's support!
