Not normal: It is not normal to have these symptoms 10 weeks after surgery. Please make an appointment and see your Doctor for re-evaluation. If you really wish to treat these symptoms by yourself, get rid of the compressive glove, try some warms soaks daily and keep hand and wrist warm. A brace may be helpful when you are using the wrist, but do not use otherwise.
