Not a very sympathetic surgeon I see. There is a guide to evaluating a patient with a poor outcome from surgery on this site here. If you read this it will tell you the sort of information we need to try and analyse the problem. The symptoms you are describing above are not typical of CTS so probably represent either the side effects of surgery or some other problem. Have a read of the failed surgery page and see if you can answer any of the key questions and I might be able to suggest the sort of person to consult. JB
