Well, maybe he’s not your husband or fiance. But he seems like an Amazing boyfriend. Good luck. Hope everything goes well.

Good luck with the surgery! Surgery sucks, I know from experience, but hopefully it will really help you out here!

I’m really glad that your boyfriend is stepping up to be supportive, good boyfriends make good husband material, yes? I also totally understand though how it would be better if he was your fiancé in the medical world. I have fears creep up now and then about what would happen if my boyfriend was in an accident. EEEEEK!

If you get too nervous when it gets closer to the surgery date come back here on the bee and I’m sure we will all be more than happy to help you calm down.

I’m sending good vibes your way!  My father had to get the surgery on both of his hands.  We were kind of worried because he’s a dentist and couldn’t work without his hands, but luckily, he regained full function and was free of pain relatively quickly.

Good luck with the surgery! One of my coworkers had that surgery done a month ago on both hands (!) and she said it was one of the best things she has ever done and she wishes she had done it sooner. She said all of the carpel tunnel pain was gone immediately after the surgery, and the only part that hurt was where the incision sites were located.

Good luck with everything!  My fiance came will me for my tonsillectomy, and during the pre-op paperwork, the nurse was like “this is your husband?” And I said, “my fiance,” and she was like, “okay, you’re going to be the healthcare proxy, sign here.”  If you guys are close enough for him to come with you for a doctors appointment like that, then people know you’re legit, and they won’t care that you’re not wearing jewelry to prove it.

I hope that it goes well!  Both my parents had it done and also one of my school friends.  I think I will end up having it done eventually since I’m already having to wear braces at night for it.

He doesn’t want to be overburdened? He might need to come to grips with the fact that you are having surgery and will need help doing most things for at least the first few days. When I had surgery, my FI- (then BF), had to help me up and down the stairs, take a shower, cook, clean, carry anything, (since I was on crutches), and drive me to all of my post op appointments.
