Carpal Tunnel 1 Month Later
Numbness CTR: Depending on the severity, carpal tunnel syndrome after skilled surgery can take up to 6 months to improve. If the night pain has improved, but the numbing and tingling has not fully resolved, you can still be part of the >90% that get better with time.

Common: Since the flexor tendons to the fingers co-habitate with the median nerve in the carpal tunnel, it is not rare for patients with carpal tunnel to eventually get trigger finger. Swelling post carpal tunnel release can lead to changes in the flexor tendon sheath that eventually leads to triggering.

Dad had bad pain, at and below elbow (wrist, fingers). Neuro diagnosed with ulnar nerve entrapment. No improvement after 1 week. What to do for pain?
