Woman recovering from "Blackberry thumb" surgery



St. Petersburg, Florida - A woman in the Philadelphia area is recovering from "Blackberry thumb" surgery.

The mortgage banker spends 12 hours a day texting clients on her iPhone.

"I'm texted out," she said.

The constant texting put so much pressure on her hands that the tendons in her thumb became inflamed. She had to undergo surgery to remove the tendons.

Doctors say if you start feeling pain during texting, stop. Don't try to power through it.

Symptoms of Blackberry thumb include pain, inflammation, numbness and tingling.

The mortgage banker is anxious to get back to work, but for now, she's using the "hunt and peck" method and trying to give her Blackberry thumb a break
