In brief: Surgery

Thats normal. A lot of patients post surgery will have a significant increase in sensation then the body will regulate and hopefully be normal after a year!

In brief: Discuss with

Your surgeon. Since we don't know your pre op feeling it is hard to comment.
If you had numbness or tingling before the surgery.....One would hope those symptoms go away. Are you implying you feel more of those symptoms or that if you were numb now you feel more? As the latter is the goal of the procedure.
