Two months after mini release carpal tunnel surgery, no improvement.
by Bill S
(North Ridgeville, OH)
Had mini open release (very small incision) for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Sept 14, 2010.
Two months later I have more numbness and much more pain than before the surgery.
Seems like every day gets a little worse. Also started to get swelling on my wrist, like a knot on one side of the incision.
Regret doing the surgery, I'm no better off now.
Sorry to hear that your Carpal Tunnel surgery didn't go so well.
Unfortunately, surgeons don't give money back guarantees with their operations.
Tendonitis and it's Carpal Tunnel Syndrome variation consist of an entire DYNAMIC of various factors.
Unless surgery can effectively reverse that dynamic, you'll still have pain and problem, as you are experiencing.
Did your doctor give you any self care routing to help keep pain away to to promote optimal results and optimal healing?
