As someone who just had release surgery I can offer the following. 1) rest and stretch your hand after using it on phone or laptop after 20 minutes. Look online for stretches. Be vigilant. 2) if u have pain or numbness. Wear a wrist guard that goes as far up your forearm as possible. Use while sleeping if you sleep on your hand and use for anything that hyper extends your hand 3) see a specialist if you have numbness, and start PT which will help! Your last straw is surgery which I had

I went and got a hand/wrist guard specific to it. Had to wear it a ton when my arm:wrist went numb and painful. Anytime I feel it spike again I wear it. It started when I had a shitty desk option at the client that destroyed my posture.

try a vertical mouse and external ergonomic keyboard, it was a game changer for me.

Evoluent makes a great mouse that has vastly improved my carpal tunnel pain
