Same operation….. Different doctor

Just over six months ago, I had carpal tunnel surgery. Nothing big.

However, if the doctor messes up it tends to become a big problem! I had constant pain after the operation and could hardly use my hand. I had very little power in my hand and my writing sucked! My wrist felt stiff. My hand would even get tired and sore if I took photos!

I went to see a specialist, who needed to operate again. First though, I needed a reference from the GP and he would not give me one! Can you believe that!? He said that he doesn’t see why I have to see a specialist.  Urgh!
Anyway, the specialist operated on Tuesday. Already my hand is better. I have more movement in my fingers than before the operation. I remember after the first one, I couldn’t move my fingers at all, for weeks.

I was nervous about having it done again but now I am so glad I did.  I cant wait for my hand to be 100% again.

  5. I’m so glad that you can move your fingers this time round.
    The cheek regarding your GP – how can he say that if he isn’t in your shoes to feel how bloody sore you had?
