You not having a subacromial decompression for the shoulders Dennis, if there are spurs affecting the biceps and rotator cuff? It’s a pretty straightforward op as they go.

I take it you’ve had nerve conduction studies to confirm the carpal tunnel syndrome? Make sure it’s not nerve root compression from your neck but I’m sure they’ve ruled that out. Meantime check out these https://youtu.be/oeV9IhFFpEk guys (there are three videos, one for each of the three main nerves in your arm). 

Yes, I had a nerve conduction study. What a weird test. At one shock, my left arm flailed around and I nearly slapped the girl doing the test involuntarily. The results were pretty immediate. My right hand is almost not firing at all, but I have more pain in the left hand, so the doctor suggested fixing that one first, just to make me feel better in general.

The upper arm spurs biting into me are definitely something to fix next, but between recovering from the hand surgery and doing something about the shoulders, I'll be able to manage some golf. My shoulders don't really hurt all that much when I swing a club. It's more a matter of reaching forward or up. If I swing more around me, it's not so troubling and I've always needed to shallow out my swing.

I've already spoken to a teaching pro buddy about setting me up like a rank beginner again once the doctors approve me to play again.

I'm sorry to hear that, Dennis. Hopefully the surgeries and healing will go well!

Also, welcome to the no golf in the winter club!

Having surgeries on both arms at the same time is one of the big reasons I've never had the interest to try downhill skiing or snowboarding. :D Even the downhills while doing cross country scare me at times. Especially the turns at the bottom of the hills.

Good luck! Try and make your own silver lining by focusing on your rehab. I've seen more than a few people end up better than they started following an injury or surgery by using rehab to re-kindle strength and flexibility they lost by inattention. I hope it goes well for you!

Blimey Dennis. Just make sure you look after yourself.

A friend of mine had a double hernia and is reputed to have asked the surgeon to make the left part of the groin a little tighter than the right - so as to promote a gentle draw. Can something similar be done to your hands?

Take care and keep us posted. We’re always agog for your news.

Whoa now... Now that's a great idea... I'll call his office first thing in the morning.

We flew home today, arriving back in Miami around 8:30 this evening. Our friend who had been taken of our dog picked us up with Hogan in the car. I was thrilled to have my little buddy back and right now he's snuggled against my leg speeling on the couch.

I have to be at the surgery center at 6:30 AM on Wednesday. They called today to tell me I'll be the first patient taken, probably starting around 7:30 after they get me in a gown and all tubed up for the anesthesia. The surgery is supposed to take about 30 minutes and I don't know how long it might take me to wake up enough to stumble to the car so a friend can bring me home.

As painful as my fingers are right now, it's really hard to button or unbutton a shirt or pants, so tomorrow, I'm going to a sporting goods store and grab a couple pair of shorts with elastic waistbands. I figure to be pretty lazy for a week or so after the surgery. Once the stitches are out, I'm supposed to get an impression as rehab starts about when I can do the right hand.

Until the hands are back in good shape, we aren't going to do anything about the bone spurs in the shoulders. My Orthopedist friend told me physical therapy might help that and I could avoid surgery.

It's 5:30 in the morning and I'm about to leave for the surgery center. Needless to say, since my left hand gets cut today, my right hand woke up more painful. Figures, huh?

I'm supposed to be the first patient done this morning, so hopefully, I'll be home around 11 AM, or around 4 PM for most of you across the pond. As soon as I get home, I want a cup of coffee and then I'm going to bed. I didn't sleep all night, so I guess I'm more nervous about this than I thought.

Talk to you all later...

The doctor said everything went really well and this morning, 24 hours post surgery, I definitely have more feeling in my left hand and fingers. The hand is extremely weak, so physical therapy will have to work on that, but I'm nearly pain free already.

The worst thing I could say right now is, the incision itches a bit and my fingers still feel sort of fat. I feel 1000% better than yesterday and I can't wait for the left hand to heal so I can get the right hand done.
