Surgery for tendonitis in the wrist and thumb

Anyone ever had surgery for tendonitis in the wrist?  I have been in horrible pain in my left wrist and thumb for over a year and thought it was carpal tunnel because I have typed for years.  I also have a lot of numbness in my right hand.  I finally went to the doctor and found out that I have carpal tunnel in my right hand but tendonitis in my left.  The doc told me that the tendonitis had gotten so bad that the only thing that would help is surgery.  I had the surgery about 2 weeks ago and am in a half cast and sling.  Everyone is asking me what happened and to my surprise I’m getting a lot of comments like “I didn’t know they could do surgery for tendonitis”.  I can’t find any info on the net and should have done some research before I had the surgery.  Do any of you know anything about it?  I go back to the doc tomorrow and want to have my questions ready.
