I haven't yet, but mine is in early stage, I sleep with wrist braces on when its at its worse. That seems to help. I wish you all the best.
@Holly F you made some excellent points and ideas of making the most of a situation.
I had to quit several years ago because of that. I got it from squeezing the icing bag. It was awful! I couldn't sleep at night and my hand was limp as a dish rag...so I quit. My wrist finally recovered after ten years and I started making cakes for the family again and limited myself to doing just a very few. Then I decided to mess around with the fondant and gum paste this last year and for some reason it doesn't have the affect on my wrist like the piping bag did. That is why I don't have a lot of butter cream cakes in my pictures-just a few.
The wrist strap that has the metal insert was the best for me, and I would highly recommend it, especially at night time. It is washable, and don't go cheap on yourself. Get one of the better ones. Whenever you are not decorating, keep that wrist band on. I truly hope the best for you! Take care!
Thank you very much for you advices and best wishes. I decided to give up cakes for some time but continue to bake cupcakes. Baking is my passion and I feel kind of addicted. :)
However, I will take it easy because of my regular administrative job where I used my hands all day long as well.
I will buy me wrist brace, I know it is necessary. It just feels weird, being in your late 20 and already having this type of problems. Thanks again.
You can also spread your fingers apart as far as you can and really streatch the hands out. That opens it up too. Best of luck whichever way you go!
