I went ahead and had the carpel tunnel syndrome surgery on my right hand yesterday morning. It went very quickly and smooth. I’m not in much pain at all and am surprised at how much I can actually do with my left hand. Other than the huge bandaging and having to keep my hand raised above my heart at all times, this really isn’t that bad. Being the work-aholic that I am, I asked the doc how quickly I could get back to crocheting. He said because of the procedure that he used, I could get back to work as soon as today! YAY! I plan on taking him up on that Hopefully I’ll have something new to show soon.
