Numbness, tingling in thumb, pain on flexing wrist. Carpal tunnel surgery done. Normal symptoms?
After carpal tunnel surgery and surgery on a neuroma in the wrist two months ago I still have numbness and tingling in my thumb and three fingers. I addition, flexing of the wrist causes considerable pain at the neuroma site. The palm side of the fingers feel like leather . Is this nomal? Am I being impatient? Will further surgery be required?
surgery should have helped you, but if it hasnt then you would probably benifit from some medicines which reduce neuropathic pain. A newve conduction test should also be done to grade the condition.
