I’m in the hospital as I write this waiting for anesthesia to come. I bought a new piano about a year ago and I guess I got a little too enthusiastic. Wish me luck. Hope everyone has a great day. Phil Barone

Good luck Phil! I'm sure the procedure will go just fine, just follow post-op instructions so you heal properly, quickly, and without complications!

Good luck Phil! After therapy and some time for the nerve damage to heal,you should be pain free and regain a lot if not all of the feeling and dexterity in your fingers. Unfortunately, if you use your body parts they do eventually break down a bit. Better than being a couch potatoe though!

Best of luck, Phil. Make sure you follow doctor orders very carefully after surgery so you don't develop RSD. Hope it works for you!

It’s night, and I hope you’re feeling alright, Phil.

FWIW, I’m going to the doc tomorrow for a consult about the osteoarthritis in my left thumb.

Cheers to getting old gracefully!

Thanks everyone for your positive thoughts. I had my surgery last Thursday, still no change but it might take some time. They don't know what to do with the other hand. Hope everyone is having a great week. Phil

Good to hear back from you, Phil. Must be time for you to practice some long tones on the piano.

FWIW, I, too, visited a hand doc this past week. My condition is inoperable - just going to get worse for a while.

All the best to ya!
