I am not really sure what you mean by this statement and maybe I don't want to know, but I am defying nothing, I have side effects from carpel tunnel to this day, the night before last night both my hands went numb from using them too much the day before, but I just shake them and the feeling comes back and I go back to sleep, the blood flow is not interrupted as I am not waking up in pain like I did when I first got carpel tunnel.
I didn't have surgery or anything else for that matter as I didn't have any permanent nerve damage or loss of use, at least that is what the state of Oregon told me, but I have lived with hand numbness for 25 years off and on, more off the last several years as I don't work as hard anymore, and I figured out how to do things different so it didn't cause issues at night, like I do not hold the trigger on the pressure washer wand with my hands, I have bolts on little bungees that go in the trigger and hold it open for me, to shut it off I just flick my finger across the bolt and it falls out or if I am losing my balance I just drop the wand and when it hits anything the bolt falls out and it quits spraying, that bolt is the only reason I can still do this job, every wand I use has it's own bolt with a bungee, I learned that trick real fast/a long time ago.

Seems to me you were on a self- customized recovery for the heart thing too. :D
