Not all surgery work: If you have not seen the doctor that did the carpal tunnel surgery then go back. Rheumatoid arthritis could make surgery more complicated it depends. You may need repeat nerve test. Should see person who did carpal tunnel release.

Unclear: Unclear what kind if surgery you had. Nerve injury or intrapment can be a factor. See hand surgeon.
