Just wondering how many of you that have had carpal tunnel release experienced complications like numb fingers, RSD, wrist hurting.....?
I had surgery Feb of 05 on my left hand and had swollen hand, especially index and long finger. Had RSD like symptoms for at least 8 months post surgery and had to wear a nitrile or latex glove to do most things. Surgeon denied doing anything wrong and said he had no clue what was wrong. I went for a second opinion ( world renowned clinic was affiliated with local clinic) and was told to go home and live with it. Major depression. Went for a third opinion and had surgery. Discovered during that surgery the previous surgeon had nicked the nerve. hand is somewhat better now, but still has problems.
