I hope someone can answer my question. I had Endoscopic CTR procedure last week. My hand is very bruised and my thumb and index finger are completely numb. My fingers are appear to be swollen and it is still sore. The numbing is way worse then before I had the procedure. The doctor stated that it was not normal to be worse. He said It should be better because he did not cut a nerve, but let's give it time to see what happens. My question is ....does the numbness go away and how long does it take before it starts going away? What are normal expectations? Should I be worried?
Definitely takes time. How long did you have carpal tunnel before the surgery? I've two procedures on my right hand from two different docs. It's been two years since the first one and although a bit better still have numbness and tingling. I probably waited too long before surgery and have some permanent damage but I keep doing exercises and hope for the best. Good luck
