Yes: It is normal to have pain at the site of the incision after carpal tunnel surgery for up to two weeks. After that it should be ivestegated. If your surgeon is not interested in helping you you should seek a second opinion soon.

Some: While typically everyone in surgery gets a prescription for pain medicine, most state that they did not need it or used it minimally. Many get by with tylenol, (acetaminophen) advil, alleve or a similar over the counter medication. Others feel the need to take pain medication for a few days everyone will not respond to surgery the same http://www.Handctr.Com/carpal-tunnel-syndrome-q-a.Html.
