: I had cts in both wrists. Last July I had my right wrist operated on, with the left one done in August. After several weeks/ months of healing, i was amazed by the lack of pain i felt. However, now i am beginning to experience pain and numbness in my left wrist and arm again. They did the procedure where they cut the ligament, and i was assured that i would not get cts again. so is this still part of the recovery, and if so, why did i go for months pain free and am just now getting these symptoms?my dr said that going back to the same type of situaiton that caused the cts will bring it back onagain. i am a letter carrier and i am claiming medical disability to avoid just that. i have cts in both wrists with surgery on the left. since i stopped working the pain in the right has subsided! my dr told me that ctsrelease only eliminates the symptons but YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE CTS the surgery can never be done again because the ligament doesn't "grow" back you just get scar tissue in it's place.
