After missing yesterday’s Today show, Lisa Wilkinson posted a photo of her arm in a cast to Instagram. Now the presenter has revealed why.
Lisa posted a photo on Instagram of her wrist wrapped up in bandages, but assured everyone that it was not as bad as it looks, returning to host The Today Show this morning.
During this morning’s show, Lisa revealed she had to undergo surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome!
CTS is a medical condition which causes a numbness, pain and fatigue in your hand due to pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. Pain can also stretch up through your arm.
About three in 100 men and five in 100 women will develop CTS at some point in their life.
