I have had CTS open release surgery on both hands and am now back at work. Recently, all of my knuckles on both hands have become swollen and tender. On the inside of my left pinky I have developed a lump that feels like a bone spur. My doctor says I am going through "arthiritic changes." I have no doubt about that....but my question is, are these 'changes' surgery related? If I had arthiritis before the fact, it sure wasn't to this degree - so I'm wondering if the operations somehow aggravated an underlying condition (that in 6 short months) has become painfully out of control. This is a worker's comp issue and I am soon to be going for a medical review that will determine to what extent my hands will have future medical care. All I want is for my job to be responsible for what they caused.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
