I use an Evoluent Vertical Mouse it allows you to hold your wrist at a more natural angle so you don't end up like this:

Which is how you hand looks for a couple of weeks after carpal tunnel and trigger finger surgery.

Oh that was years ago, I've had both wrists done now about 6 years apart. Things are much better now. I also use an ergonomic keyboard and vim to reduce the amount on mouse use.

OMG, I feel for 'ya, man. I've had all the hand, arm, neck, shoulder and finger ailments you can get from programming. I don't know if I could go thru the hand surgery, though. 6 years ago I had to have my hip replaced because of my sitting position - that was plenty of surgery for me! I hope you are well now.
