Carpal Tunnel — Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
How should my hand feel after carpal tunnel surgery?
Normally, after the first couple of days following carpal tunnel surgery, you should not have numbness or pain. If numbness and pain persist, you may have suffered an injury to your median nerve. You should go back to your surgeon or seek a second opinion because if the nerve injury is left unaddressed, the chance to repair the injury may be lost and your problems may be permanent.
