"Carpel Tunnel"

About: Colchester General Hospital

I had my Carpel Tunnel Operation done Sept '14, to be honest not looking forward to it. I suffer from Fybromyalgia and Epilepsy so was having the op done under Local Anaesthesia. I should not have worried one bit. Even at the point where I was told it might hurt it didn't!! The Surgeon and theatre staff were fantastic. The ward staff lovely and efficient in a very busy small ward. I used to work in CGH so I do have a soft spot for it. First time Op there, they were wonderful and wrist is doing fine no worries at all!!
