Specializes in Neurology

Nerve damage: damage to the nerves going to the muscles in that region. called fasciculations. Possibly due to damage caused by surgery. this should resolve over time. if it doesn't resolve in a couple of months, I would see a neurologist, specially if you are having symptoms like numbness and twitching in your hands and feet.
