I need surgery.
I know I am not a doctor or a surgeon or even really good at scrabble but I know I need Carpal Tunnel surgery and I need it STAT!
Every night I wake up constantly with my hand numb and hurting. It drives me nuts. While I am at work my hand constantly falls asleep which makes sending out a “quick email” not so quick. It drives me nuts!
A few years ago I was told that I had nerve damage in both of my arms and hands. I had surgery on my left arm. They relocated a nerve running on the outside of my arm to the inside and did the carpal tunnel surgery so many of you have had or know about. Since then, my left hand has had no problems at all.
My right arm was never done because I changed jobs and saw new doctors and yadda yadda yadda. You all know that drill. It drives me nuts.
But now it has gotten to the point where it is almost unbearable. I am tired all the time due to lack of sleep, I am miserable at work because my hand keels going “night night” on me.
It drives me nuts!
My left hand was out of commission for some time after that last one I wonder how the heck I am going to function! Since I am right handed and my work requires lots of computer stuff, at church I play guitar so that will be out, and then blogging and tweeting will take one keystroke at a time! Yuck!
Just thinking about it drives me nuts.
Oh well, we shall see what the Doc says on Monday and go from there. I have an appointment to go over the blood work.
