Best wishes to you in your recovery. Speaking of, how long is the recovery period? Will there be permanent restrictions of movement or behavior once the healing is completed? Hang in there.

well it's the second week after the surgery and I tell you my hand feels 110% better, I actually have the feeling back and man does it feel better! I don't know what the actually recovery time is, it varys with the person and how bad it is. I hope it doesn't take to much longer. I am typing like a chicken !

I had the CTS op on my left hand about six months ago, and I was excepting all sorts of misery and boredom strapped up fr weeks watching tv, but I was out in the garage within three days tinkering, and within a week I was welding and grinding as if nothing had happened. The only real problem was I could not put any weight on the palm, felt like a large lump inside. Scar tissue apparently, but it is fading away now.

The physiotherapist told me the best thing to do was start using the hand as soon as possible.
