I just underwent Carpal Tunnel Release on my right hand, after having my left done back in Janurary. Anyone that is scared of the procedure... don't be.. it has done wonders. It might have you deal with your surgeon. I have a mear 3/4 inch scar that is hardly noticeable on my left hand.. and shouldn't be any bigger on my right. Does anyone know of any good wrist supporters, etc... that I could wear on my left hand while playing to prevent getting CTS again? If you're in the DC area and need a CTS surgeon... my is damn good.. I'd give you his name.
