Finger Numbness: Peripheral neuropathy can be the cause. Unlikely that carpal tunnel can cause numbness of little finger.

Sometimes, even after the carpal tunnel surgery, the symptoms of tingling on finger tips may last for a long time. The main idea of the surgery is to prevent further damage to the nerve.

Nrv compression : Previous ctr does not preclude you from recurrence .... However it is rare i would advise evaluation by a neurologist this eval.May include cervical spine x-rays and possible a mri.
