Pain after Carpal tunnel release
I had open carpal tunnel release surgery on my right hand over a month ago,  and I got my stitches out and stopped wearing the brace about a week ago. Now I have been experiencing some pain and discomfort that I would consider to be normal post operative pain and that has been slowly getting better. Unfortuatly I also seem to be having a new, strong pain in the outside of my right wrist when I move my pinkie and ring fingers. I was not aware of the pain before the surgery and I was wondering if this would still be considered "normal" pain at this point.

Hello!

The band of tissue which is causing complications and symptoms around the median nerve in your hand is removed during this procedure of carpal tunnel release surgery.

Although symptoms may be relieved immediately after surgery, full recovery from carpal tunnel surgery can take months. I would suggest you to go for a post operative examination near your orthopedician to rule out infection, nerve damage, stiffness, and pain at the scar.

Take care!
