Re: Nerve symptoms normal after arthroscopy?
Nerves are really delicate, and surgery tends to freak them out. Being brushed against or even just exposed to air can cause weird nerve symptoms for weeks to months after the surgery. Permanent and significant nerve damage is rarer.
After my ankle arthroscopy, I had this "electric shock" sensation on my last two toes. That faded within a few weeks as I healed. Half of my big toe was completely numb, that went away 14 months after the surgery. A LOT of us experience weird nerve symptoms, most of them go away or decrease significantly.
Also, some of the tingling may just be from swelling. Keep elevating, be patient, and DO mention it to your surgeon at your scheduled follow-up.
