Cubital Tunnel Surgery Concerns


I had cubital tunnel surgery on August 12th and I'm a little worried. During the surgery, they went ahead and did a nerve block. Now from what I have read, the nerve block only lasts 24-48 hours.  Well, it will be 2 weeks on Monday and my pinky/ring finger, palm and elbow are completely numb. With the numbness in the hand, the two knuckles are really sore.

Is this something I should be worried about?
