I went back to the doctor today since I still have an odd rash on my wrist. Taking off the tape didn’t help, and Benadryl hasn’t helped, so I thought they should see it in person if only to stop my worries about what could be causing it.
As a perk, they changed out the steri-strips, cleaned everything up, put on fresh steri-strips and then just a Band-Aid! No more Ace wrap or anything. I pointed out to the assistant that I could not walk into class today after telling people I had surgery last week with just a Band-aid on my hand. There are no sympathy points there. She agreed, plus said it would be best to wear the wrap when I am out just to give it some added protection – but when I am home, it is Band-Aid only so that the inflamed skin can breath.
I actually looked at my scar, and I have to say it doesn’t look bad at all. All in all, I would definitely say this surgery has been a huge success. If you have problems with Carpal Tunnel, do not fear the release surgery. And if you live in Houston and want the name of my doctor, let me know.
UPDATE: Jason just informed me that Band-aids fix everything. Just like duct tape. He said the doctor should have just put on a Band-aid to begin with.
