Carpal Tunnel Recovery time?
#1
I'm having surgery on my left hand for carpal tunnel and then my right shortly after. Anyone have this done? How long did it take for recovery before you were able to go back to doing nails?

Thanks!!

Best wishes and good luck for a speedy recovery! My personal recovery time was fast! I did like you, left hand first....scheduled it on a Thursday, and was back to work on Tuesday. Did the same scheduling for my dominant right hand, but didn't do fingernails for about another week -- just pedicures. My clients were so great about working with me in getting "modified" services while I recovered. Working around the awkwardness of the brace and bandage was really all I dealt with, because there was truly not much pain, and my doctor liked that I was using my fingers as much as I could.

I have done my eye surgery 2 months ago. I have no idea about the hand surgery. But generally speaking, hand surgery would recovery faster than eye surgery.
