still not recovering from carpal tunnel surgery--HELP
This is my second posting on this board about this issue. 13 weeks ago I had bilateral carpal tunnel surgery. Prior to surgery my only symptons were constant aching pain with intermittent tingling. I tested negative with both phalens and tingel signs, but a nerve conduction study and EMG by my neurologist indicated I had severe compression in both wrists, so 13 weeks ago I had bilateral open carpal tunnel surgery. I had immediate relief from my symptoms, which laster about 6 weeks, before the base of both of my wrists became very sore and tender. Now my hands and fingers are constantly aching and sore, especially when I wake up in the morning. My doctor says this is normal, that recovery can take months, and that I have probably irritated my hands by doing too much (I'm a very active 38 yo male). Has anyone else undergone this surgery and have similar experiences? I'm beginnig to lose hope that the procedure worked.
