Hand Surgery Problem

05/07,I had surgery on my left hand for carpal tunnel release an anchovy procedure for my left thumb. After the nerve block wore off, .The tip of my middle finger is very sensitive to touch and feels swollen but isn't. Left hand is cool an sweaty or much warmer an sweaty as compared to the right. Also the pad is swollen near the thumb. What is going on with my hand. I was put to sleep before they gave me the nerve block. Can you explain what is going on?  The hand surgeon can not. Please help

Know this doesnt help u but about how long did your nerve block last? Is it worth doing over and over?
