Tinel sign after CT Release


Hi, I did CTS endoscopic release a week ago. Now the hand is bruised, but generally not painful apart from using it. However what bothers me is when I lightly tap on the tunnel area it gives me slight zaps down my fingers. Is it normal after the surgery? My doctor says that it could be due to irritated nerve after the surgery and should go away. However I'm worried because I had this before the surgery. Please kindly advise if anyone knows. Thanks! ))


I would not worry about that 1 week post-op. There are still going to be lots of inflammatory chemicals floating about in the area as a result of your body's reaction to having a knife taken to it and these are likely to make the nerve irritable. JB
