pain after CTR
Hi, I am a 33 old female. Last year I was diagnosed with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. I am not sure how bad it was, but in the nerve conduction study the sensory part did not respond to the elctrical stimulation. I had bilateral carpal tunnel release in August 2010. Afterwards pain and sensation improved a bit. I was told it will take some time until the sensation is back to normal. Unfortunately since December 2010 I have lost more and more sensation in both hands again and the pain has increased. Now my hands are clumsier and I have less sensation in both hands than before surgery. And I have the same amount of pain than before the surgery. My orthopaedic surgeon told me he does not know why the hands have deteriorated after the surgery, but he is not willing to do anything for my hands. I should continue to take the pain killers, and he wishes me good luck. Do you have an idea what's going on with my hands? And how I can get rid of the pain? It would be nice to get some sensations back into my hands, but more importantly to get rid of the pain and be able to reduce the pain killers.
