carpal tunnel surgery and ulnar nerve damage

I had endoscopic Carparl tunnel surgery in January In July my pinky and ring finger went numb I went back to the doctor that did the carpal tunnel surgery and he is saying its my Ulnar nerve.  I have been on anti-inflamatories and I still cant feel my fingers, I am getting pain/achiness in the palm of my hand back of elbow and wrist. I have an appointment with a neurologist next week.  My questiom is could the carpal tunnel surgery weakened or damaged my ulnar nerve? I like the doctor I am using but everyone is telling me I need a second opinion after I get the results from the nerologist. That there is a possibility that damage to the ulnar nerve was caused by the carpal tunnel surgery since I never had a problem with the ulnar nerve before.
