I had carpal tunnel done in January and am just now starting to have any positive results. Some days are better than others, but my mom said it took her a year before she felt better. However, something to think about
is, my surgeon told me I had what they call a "Double Crush" meaning that the nerve in my wrist that was pinched was one of the nerves in my neck that was also crushed. He told me that there was a chance that the surgery on my wrist alone might not help, and now I am facing neck and lower spine surgery. I am hoping that if they can "unpinch" the nerve he was talking about
, meaning that it was the nerve in my neck, not the nerve in my wrist that was causing the problem. Do you have neck problems? If you don't know, you might look into it, might have something to do with why you haven't gotten any relief from any of the surgeries!
New MRI's show I have 3 GOOD vertabrae. The rest are bulging, compressed, protruding or in one of the three spinal stenosis' in my back. One stenosis in my neck and two in my lower back. Fibromyalgia, cfs, degenerative bone disease, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, HORRIBLE memory problems, panic attacks, depression, and muscle cramps that don't stop.
