by lisa
(west midlands, uk)

Hi I had Carpal Tunnel Surgery last april (2010) since then the pain has gotten worse.

Over the past few weeks ive been getting pain in my shoulder but over the past 3 or 4 days its got that bad ive been having to cry as the pain is really bad.

I have the wrist splints and I'm taking medication for the pain (solpadol 30/500mg) but I'm not getting any relief the pain is really bad and as been made worse since surgery.

I get cramping in my fingers a lot of pain in and around my hand like a stabbing burning pain i can't write a sentence anymore without being in pain.

Any advice please as soon as possible.

Hi Lisa.


Unfortunately, there's very little if any recourse against your surgeon and doctors for leaving you in such a state...

So. Questions, and then a to do:

1. Surgery one one or both wrists?

2. How long had you had pain/symptoms?

3. What were the pain/symptoms?

4. What -exactly- did the surgeon do?

5. What post-surgery directions were you given, as far as self care/recovery?

First things first. Help your body lower pain levels.


A. Learn how to How To Reduce Inflammation. With symptoms as acute as
yours, you're going to need to to A LOT of dips before you notice any decrease in pain (having said that, you could notice it right away).

B. Read about Magnesium Dosage and Magnesium for Tendonitis. Then get to your tolerance level ASAP, and epsom salt baths too. ASAP.

C. Carpal Tunnel And Vitamin B6 Research says 100-200mg/day is safe and effective.

B6 deficiency can cause carpal tunnel symptoms. If that was your problem, and you got surgery, the surgery just made things WORSE without ever having a chance of helping.

It's cheap and safe. No reason not to.
