Yes: 4 weeks is still early in the healing process and it's reasonable to still have some pain in the palm. Some warning signs would be if the pain is getting worse.

I had carpal tunnel release operation 8 weeks ago, but I am still in considerable pain. Is this normal?

There may also be a problem with the nerve near the neck. ...Read more

Does the dentist have a hard time numbing you up for drilling teeth? ...Read more
