    CTS ? exscuse my ignorance. Anything to do with the heart surgery they try and have you up and walking around the next day. The only CTS that I have heard of is Carpel Tunnel Syndrome in the hands, between the wrist and the base of the palm of your hand.

      Hi  bill02592 ,

      Thanks for clearing that up, just that it had me a bit confused being under the angina section smile

      The procedure doesn't take to long, there is a little bit of pain after surgery but that is expected , recovery time is around 6 weeks, not suppose to drive for that period, I had both mine done within a month and that would of been 15 year ago, no signs of it returning, but then again I'm not in the same line of work as to when I was back then. I  started driving after the second week, not advisable but I had to. Yes once your hand has healed you will be able to go back to playing your  guitar might feel a bit funny to start with but generally all is good  smile
