ok this is something that can affect all ages and in different professions but it shows up in woodworking to..
the procedure for treatment seems to be small in house surgery or exercise and splints.. i was told i have it in both hands and worse on my right second year i have been told this.. went to two different nerve doctors yesterday and got two different answers..??? one said wait for 6 months and do the exercises and wear splints the other one told me that i would eventually loose muscle mass in my hand near my thumb and that it will be come permanent numbness and loss of grip if i dont do something for it being the surgery where they split the canal and let it have more room to move..
well we were put together with said parts for a reason and to cut one of them to make room doesnt make sense and i really dont want to end up with out grip or use of my hands either. so have any of you folks had this or deal with it and whats your take on fix or deal with it? the way i felt at the last doctor was they were nice and did test my hands for strength as of now but i still look at them as car saleman we got this car and we can get you into it and you will not loose any of the tires, where is your cash at?
