A thread i never wanted to write!!
Just wondered if anyone here has had it and could offer any advice or words of wisdom!! I did use the search function but it's no good, it returns threads like the photography thread and the presidential race!!
So, i have had the symptons for a while. Though the aches and twinges have not been too severe for the most part the frequent waking up with tingling fingers is very disturbing!!
I went to my doctors a few weeks back and he suggested first try anti inflammatory tablets, starting with 2 tabs three times a day, which eased it then drop to one three times a day when it became more prominent again. Once i'd finished the course it was the same as before!! I'm now looking at surgery and have an appointment with a specialist at my local hospital on the 2nd June to discuss it!!
Guitar is my sanity, and driving is a huge part of my job!! This will mean a fair bit of time off work which will cripple me financially, and long time without touching any guitar at all which will hurt mentally!!
Has anyone here had it and been fine after?? Or is there an alternative to having my wrist cut open??
I don't mind admitting.....i'm scared
I know it's not a major life threatening operation but this will have a big impact on what makes my life worth getting out of bed for! I have already hugely cut down on my playing and it's really frustrating
Will be greatful for any information guys and girls.
