May want to discuss: With your surgeon. The numbness should nothave gotten worse at two months and you may be having some scarring/adhesion issues or increased edema causing further compression on median nerve. While some of this can be expected post surgically, it should be getting better. With cts surgery, though, it's not uncommon to have a long healing process, even up to six months, that's if the surgery worked.

Not normal: If your symptoms have worsened since surgery, this is not normal. It may be due to excessive scar tissue or inflammation around the site of surgery. Please make an appointment and see your Doctor for further evaluation.
