severe pain in wrist when using after surgery

I had my third carpal tunnel surgery. This time, the doctor used something called a fat flap to help cover the nerve. right after surgery, the tingling was horrible. Now the tingling has subsided quite a bit, but about three months after surgery, my wrist felt very tight, and only gets tighter and more painful when I use it. It is so bad, that when I have opened five envelopes to read the mail, my wrist and my fingers are killing me. my wrist was tight and my fingers burned.

I have seen so many doctors -- to no avail. I have had MRIs, EMG's, and bone x-rays. They all say everything is normal. I know for a fact this is not normal because it has limited me in my life. The pain is severe. Before surgery, a cortisone worked great to help relieve pain and wrist tightness. I tried a cortisone shot after surgery, but it did nothing. Does anyone have any suggestions??? Does anyone know if there's any help for a failed carpal tunnel surgery?

Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated.! I am in desperate need of some kind of advice.: (

Re: severe pain in wrist when using after surgery

I'm in a similar situation, hand is numb and weak and wrist gets tight 10 months after surgery

Google "Canaletto implant", it's an implant that protects your carpal tunnel and rebuilds your TCL. Maybe that will help you. Not sure if it's available in USA though. HB won't allow me to post a link. Good luck!
