Carpel Surgery is a Flop

Against my advice, a friend had surgery for carpel tunnel.
The doctor told her she would be fiddling again in 2 weeks.

Months after the operation, she was still experiencing horrible carpel like symptoms, and has had to give up fiddling entirely.

This doctor recently did an MIR and told her that he did not know why the problem persisted. Possibly tissue had encased a nerve.

She is now planning to see a physician about acupuncture.

It is very sad that she can no longer do what she loves most.

Any commentary will be greatly appreciated.
