Xray is unreadable: Ask for a two view wrist and ap views with ulnar and radial deviation to assess carpal bones and intercarpal intervals looking for instability. If normal consider MRI or (if someone is good at it and most radiologists aren't) wrist ultrasound. ...Read more

? Fracture/ligament: Pain in hand can be due to ligament injury or due to fracture of the scaphoid bone ;sometimes this does not show up on x-ray till 10-12 days later but as these fractures may not heal well, most hand surgeons will treat a patient as if they have the fracture by placing them in a cast from the start.If repeat x-rays confirm diagnosis then the cast is kept for 8 weeks.

You need to see: A hand specialist. The question is a bit unclear. If you had the surgery already and are still having issues and the surgeon is not addressing them see another hand specialist. An xray is worthless. Carpal tunnel usually has nothing to do with bones as much as soft tissue causing nerve impingement. Scar tissue is not seen on xrays. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on why your hand goes numb. Sounds like you need an emg/NCS to assess your median nerve (the nerve that travels through and is compressed in carpal tunnel).
