I'm 8 weeks post-op from CT release surgery on my left hand. Since surgery, I've woken up twice with my pinkie and ring finger numb, which I know is from pressure on the the ulnar nerve. (I had a problem with that too before my surgery.) I wasn't too concerned about that, as I know the surgery doesn't help with that problem.
But this morning I freaked out when I woke up and my whole hand was numb again, just like it used to be before my surgery. Does this mean the surgery didn't work? Or could I just have overused my hand yesterday and had a bit of swelling that put pressure on the nerve? Has anyone else had this happen? What do I need to do? Help!!
