Right hand great. Left hand carpal surgery done and trigger thumb same time. Right hand, barely visable. Left hand looks like the doctor used a dull knife. It was much more bruised after surgery as well. Seems more numb, palm area, and the peace sign fingers very numb. Nighttime the left hand feels like the skin is too tight so I hold onto a lunch size ice pack. It hurts. :( Going back to the brace, but after surgery, it's disappointing. Do I give it more time? Don't want to appear impatient, but deductible time running out too. Can't afford starting over in January. Thanks!!
