- How long can numbness last after carpal tunnel surgery??
- You would think that it should be back to normal by now. Maybe if the Dr. gave you pills to take for later on that they may be helping so you won’t have much pain. My mom had hers done several months ago but she had no problems with pain.

- Carpal tunnel release – how long does pain last?
- Q: Hi! I had carpal tunnel release and trigger thumb release surgery 6 weeks ago.The palm/heel of my hand still feels like someone hit it with a hammer, I can’t lean on it at all and I get really really sharp stabbing pains in my wrist and thumb (not electric shocks like before). I also get an achy wrist, with the ache shooting up to my elbow.Can anyone tell me if these symptoms are normal following carpal tunnel release, and if they are, about how long do they take to ease up a bit. I can’t believe it’s been 6 weeks and it still really hurts to use a can opener (forget it, I can’t!) and turn a doorknob.Thanks so much!Thank you all for your answers. I’m 38. I’ve had no electric shocks at all since the surgery. The pain since then is quite different.The pain from the wrist to the thumb is sharp and stabbing – and then the aching and bruised sensations are on the heel of my hand.I can move my thumb now (for the first time in 6 years; it was completely locked), but there is a lot of pain. I’m not much of a complainer, but this is getting frustrating.Honestly, I was expecting discomfort and weakness, but not this at all…
- A: Hi, I was looking for some similar answers when I saw your post. I had carpal tunnel release and trigger thumb release on my right hand almost 8 weeks ago and carpal tunnel release on my left hand (dominant), almost 5 weeks ago. It made me smile to see your description of your pain as I have the same symptoms. The right hand is much stronger now and the pain lessons every week. I had the severe stabbing pain in the right hand, it began about 2 weeks after surgery and it has now resolved. The left hand just started having those pains about two weeks ago, ( three weeks after surgery). I asked my surgeon and he tells me that is a positive sign of the nerves healing. I am trying to be patient, my doctor told me that on average I can expect to be reasonably healed about 3 months after surgery, but I have done a lot of reading on this and find that many sites suggest some real discomfort up to six months. I suffered for almost 5 years before having the surgeries and I know that this increases the possibility that I will not ever be 100% but I know that it was successful because for the first time in 3 years I can sleep all night! I am very careful with what I do, lifting, twisting, pushing etc… can cause real pain if I overdo. It is difficult to do all that I have to do but a messier house and taking more time is a small price to pay for the relief. It is good to hear from someone who shares the same symptons, it confirms to me that these are normal and time and patience will hopefully give us both a good result. Good Luck
