post op 2 mths 1 week


Had op 27. 7.13. On left hand. Recovery seems to be taking a lot longer, than right hand, which only took about 3weeks to get better. Base of my palm feels really tight and my grip not too good. Also for the 1st 6wks had considerable pain, weakness ,numbness in my thumb. Which never had pre op. It is improving now. But still quite weak n tight. Is this to be ecpected? Thanks for your time.

The left side was worse than the right but I doubt if that is the explanation for the difference in recovery in this case. You may just be unlucky with the scar and the configuration of your wrist on that side. The key thing is.... have the original CTS symptoms resolved after surgery? JB
