usually carpal tunnel decompression surgery is quite successful with most patient get very good results.
I think you should wait until you get the nerve study performed again to help the doctor making appropriate diagnosis of your hands symptoms.

if there is only mild carpal tunnel compression in the left hand (on the nerve test) then night time removable splint or steroid injection might ease your symptoms

hope you get well soon
