Hi Pam,
Did you have shoulder pain and weakness prior to the Surgery? If yes, then you might have cervical spondylosis. Cervical spondylosis with or without cervical disc prolapse causes shoulder pain and weakness and could co exist with carpal tunnel syndrome. In such patients, the pain persists inspite of surgery. I would suggest to get an Xray or MRI of the cervical spine done to rule out this disorder.
For the meanwhile you can have any tablet with Vitamin B complex once a day daily for 2 months.
