So my partner had to have surgery for trigger finger last week. She caught it early, but was also having some wrist pain as well, so they tested for carpal tunnel. For this she also tested as having some issues and since they were going in for the trigger finger, they were going to fix the carpal tunnel issue as well.

Of course, she tests really really well. Even when she's not great in a particular topic or issue, if it's a standardized test she does well. After the surgeon opened things up ... he was shocked to discover she had a REALLY tight carpal tunnel ... definitely needed the surgery for that even more than the trigger finger.

And ... since I've been playing with the macro lens ... I sure couldn't resist taking a few pics. The first is the upper palm of the hand for the trigger finger. I'm going to try another one of the trigger finger tonight in the natural light from another angle and see if I can get it a bit more clear.

and then here's the carpal tunnel incision:
