I can't help you but just wanted to say I hope you get better soon. I have both ulnar and carpal in both arms and I am likely to have the first surgery within a month. I hope you make a full recovery. xx

Hi Caseymay,
U Might Be In Pain If You Are Using Yr Hands Too Much. Just Everyday Use Or If U Leaned Too Hard While Getting Out Of The Tub Or Anything Else That Causes You To Put Pressure On The Hand Will Do It.
Or Just Making A Fist While Sleeping.
Just How I Feel Most Days.

Re: why am i in pain after carpal tunnel operation ?

You can't go back (ever) to a lifestyle you used to have. If you bring in groceries from the car, carry bags in the crook of your elbow instead of using your hands to carry them. And never carry anything heavy at all. Take breaks in between by letting your arms hang loose. I used to be a sew-a-holic, making an item in an afternoon. Now I use battery operated scissors and I might take a week to make something and then I won't sew again for months. I never pin fabric anymore, I place weights (candles, books, etc) on the fabric and then outline the pattern pieces with a pen. If you go back to what you did before surgery, you will only bring back the same problems.

Johands , How True, I Cant Even Sew A Button So Hard To Hold The And Needle And Thread Then To Hold The Fabric.
I Cut A Piece Of My Finger Off The Other Day Just Trying To Cut My Nails, Couldnt Hold The Scissor Straight And Then My Other Hand Was Hurting So I Missed A Little.
So Difficult, No One Ever Told Me I Would Never Be Able To Do Simple Things Again.
Too All Who Had Or Are Thinking About Cpt Surgery.. Think Long And Hard Because The Results Are Not Always What The Dr Says..
