After eight years, I'm finally having surgery for carpal tunnel. It's gotten way past the "managing" point; I have pain and numbness from about mid-forearm all throughout my hand. The surgical nurse that called today said something about "surgery for carpal tunnel release," which I knew, but then she said something else about ulnar nerve, so I guess that's on the list as well. I go in at 7 am. Miss KT will be taking me to and from surgery, and will also be my primary caretaker. I'm hoping she magically learns how to cook before tomorrow, or I will be eating Top Ramen, macaroni and cheese soup, and toast three meals a day.
