Carpal tunnel
I had a carpal tunnel release two months ago. Is it normal for my hand to still sometimes experience pain? (I work with a computer mouse 8 hours a day)
Thanks a lot!

Spokie, it’s not normal, but I suppose it’s possible especially if you started using your hand too soon after the operation. You can try taking a long acting anti-inflammatory like Brexecam® once a day for ten days and see what happens. If it doesn’t clear up you will have to see the doctor that did the operation again. Good luck.
