6 Weeks post surgery.


I had my right hand operated on 6 weeks ago now. I am experiencing severe pain, slight swelling and noticeable weakness in my wrist, palm and sometimes fingers. Is this normal at this stage? And when should I expect these symptoms to subside. I have a 6 month old baby and although the carpal tunnel symptoms have improved, I'm finding my hand is still a hindrance with the amount of pain I'm now having. I am also right handed.
I hope you can help.


No it's uncommon to have that much trouble at this point, though not necessarily an indication of anything seriously amiss. We should however take a look at it. Could you get in to see me on Tuesday morning next week (28th)? JB
