In brief: Yes
Unfortunately carpal tunnel syndrome (cts) may recur in a small population of patients.
This is best assessed by your md using a physical exam and a emg/ncv (needle study of your nerve/muscles) exam. The good news is that most patients do well with open carpal tunnel release surgery in the case of recurrence.
