Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better?

Hi,

 

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.

 

It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.

 

Thanks again!

I had seen other doctors in the practice for other conditions, so I did not need a lot of tests done when I saw Dr.
Polaris Carpal Tunnel Provider Name Locked
. He took a thorough history about my carpal tunnel symptoms, and I appreciate that I did not have to go through a battery of tests, as I had been fending this off for almost 20 years. He explained the procedure very well and answered all my questions. I was and remain very pleased with his knowledge, expertise and bedside manner, and most importantly with the results of the surgery. The incision on each wrist was very small, and after a year or so, nearly impossible to see. After the powerful numbing agent wore off, the pain was comparatively minimal. The recovery time with this endoscopic surgery was markedly faster than for those I know who had the open release surgery. The bandages come off in 3 days, and after that only a band-aid is needed for about a week. Down time was 12 - 16 days, though hand function returns progressively starting a few days after the surgery. I was very pleased with the procedure, including the anaesthetic, recovery, and the results. I wish I could say the same for the outpatient clinic where the surgery was done. The post-op visits were thorough and easy to schedule. Post-op OT is available on site, if needed. I have not had any subsequent problems. I would return to Dr.

needed to regain use of her right hand and wrist as soon as possible. Three courses of action were proposed. The options were outlined by a surgeon who had no stake in the actual surgery. She elected the surgical option with the insertion of pins to correct the angulation and stabilize the wrist so as to return to work.

I was given an appointment in three weeks, and actually scheduled it following my husbands appointment. Dr
Polaris Carpal Tunnel Provider Name Locked
did a thorough check over on my husband, and then examined my problem. He explained exactly what the problem was, and what he could do. I opted for the injection, which he did at this very appointment. He explained the procedure totally before he did it. When he brought out this huge needle I was a little anxious, but still offered him my thumb. He added in some humor which made things easier, and honestly, I hardly felt the injection. He told me what to expect, and how to know if it wasn't going to be successful. Dr

then explained what would need to be done if this procedure did not help. The procedure was successful, and my insurance covered it all. I was very satisfied with the care I received there.

The surgery went as planned and I was discharged with very detailed and particular instructions. PT follow-up was scheduled right away, and I received excellent subsequent care on my next visit. I healed up according to plan, though I had to be reassured a couple of times to give it time. I was back to my "farm" chores withina couple of weeks (light duty) and spent the rest of my time continuing PT at home. I am always please with Dr.

Dr.
Polaris Carpal Tunnel Provider Name Locked
has very good bedside manner. He listens well, and adapted his treatment to the special needs of my mother, who is in her 80s. They patiently cast the wrist a few times, trying to find a method that she could tolerate. The entire clinic staff was knowledgeable, considerate and patient. It has been a few months, and his conservative treatment seems to have been the best approach.
The clinic (on
