May as well do it no: It is common for a trigger thumb to develop after carpal tunnel surgery. This first line of treatment is an injection, which will not have any significant down time.

Trigger finger injec: If the trigger finger is locking several times a day or if you need to unlock it with the other hand it is time for a trigger finger cortisone injection.
