If your work is repetitive hand motion and is not helped by wrist braces and a second opinion verifies the diagnosis, I would recommend the surgery. I am in the jack of all trades facilities maintenance line of work. Im sure all the years of swinging a hammer and the shock from that aggravated it. For 6 months straight I was laying floor tile and the constant leaning on my hands and the constant placing and slapping tiles down aggravated the carpal tunnel in both wrist. I had surgery a few months apart . After one wrist healed and therapy showed improvement the other was done. Total recovery and therapy was 4-5 months. Actual pain and non use of each hand was about 2 weeks. It has been almost 20 years now and I don't have any issues. Now my knees from all that tiling, different story.
