What Kind Of Surgery Do I Need For A Broken Right Thumb
I had trigger thumb and carpal tunnel surgery on March 17, 2015. I still have numbness,tingling, tightness,sensitivity,is this normal ?
Yes: It takes time for the inflamed tissue to heal both from where the surgery was done and from around the nerve that was injured. Then it will take time for the nerve itself to heal. I just had this discussion with my hand surgeon. The nerve heals approximately 1-2 mm a day not counting the first month after surgery. Give it time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Sprained both thumbs in Dec. Right one grade3, required (successful) surgery. The left one xrayed fine, but it still hurts often. Back to doc?
Thumb surgery: Some times you would need a cast after thumb surgery. Some times a protective dressing would be adequate. Your surgeon would be the one that i would take advice from as he/she will know how much protection and for how long it will be required following your particular surgery. Good luck. ...Read more

Yes. There are many : genetic syndromes associated with radial club hand.
