I am right now wearing a splint for wrist pain. It's not carpal tunnel,
but instead Dequervain's tenosynovitis. I've been going to PT
diligently twice a week for a few weeks, and wearing this splint, taking
off a few times a day to exercise, then back into the resting splint,

I hate surgery. I hate the thought of it. I hate the IV's and sedation
and lack of control and hospitals, etc. I know that as far as surgeries
go, a tendon release is a minor operation. I just hate the thought of
it. I'm going the "conservative" route.
