CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME
The downloadable leaflet is for anyone who is recovering from, or is about to undergo surgery to ease the pain, pins & needles and numbness caused by carpal tunnel syndrome. The technical term for your operation is a carpal tunnel release, which is how your surgeon and other health professionals who are helping you may refer to it. The following information is designed to help you make the important decisions about your recovery – such as when you should go back to work, and generally just get back to enjoying life the way you like it. Your surgeon, GP and other healthcare professionals will offer you a lot of very good advice – but ultimately it’s you that has to make the decision. The advice in this leaflet offers broad guidelines for people who do not have any complications with their surgery, or other specific medical circumstances, such as a long-term condition. Obviously, every individual has different needs and recovers in different ways – so not all the advice in this leaflet will be suitable for everybody. When you’re weighing up how to make the decision that’s right for you, talk to your Occupational Health service at work, if you have one. Otherwise, talk to your GP. Either one will help you to make the right choices for a safe and speedy recovery.
