Hi Scott. I wish you well on your surgery. We'll jave to talk sometime soon.
It not the keyboard, it's the keyboardist.

Thanks to everyone for the support and kind words.
As some of you know, I've been suffering with
trigger finger (left thumb) for several months, originally posted here, and after trying
the suggestions given by others, and then limited relief folowing
cortisone shots, my orthepedic doctor
recommended I undergo hand surgery to permanently
eliminate the problem from coming back again as it has seriously curtailed my ability to accept gigs.
Though the left thumb click pain is tolerable while playing, the bigger problem is the limited use of my left hand to grasp hold lift and transport my music gear.
My surgery (which includes twilight anethesia sedation) is scheduled
for Monday, Nov, 19th, and my orthepedic hand surgeon says I should be fully back to performing again
in 3 weeks, which should allow me (thumbs crossed) to keep some of my pre-booked holiday gigs.
I'll post an update here after the surgery as well as a followup 2-3 weeks later.

Scott cool

If interested, here's a link to a video of what the surgery entails.

Hi Scott

Hope everything will work out fine at the 19th...

BTW: Aase broke her left middle finger last Wednesday... Of course, she does not play keyboard. She can not even cook... So, right now I am the chef...

The best wishes from Denmark

So sorry to hear that you haven't found a solution to your problem without going to surgery. It only makes me realize how lucky I was...

About the only thing I can say is, research your surgeon rigorously. For something so critical to your entire life and profession, don't simply assume he's the best...
An arranger is just a tool. What matters is what you build with it..!

Scott even though we've had our differences in the past...
I want to wish you good luck and a speedy recovery with your procedure on your thumb. I know first hand what is entailed as I have been thru something similar years ago in the service.
Before you know it you will be good as new.
