Finger tingling after carpal tunnel surgery

User Profile
I had carpal tunnel surgery 8 was ago and during surgery (which lasted over an hour) I got a painful,shock. Since the surgery the side of my middle finger next to my ring finger and ring finger next to my middle finger have a tingling sensation and numbness to the tip. Will this go away and if so how long will it take. I also had a hematoma.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. If its been just 8 days then yes these sensations will go and normal healing process. Wait and observe and take those neuropathic medications you are on for pain killing.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
