Patient Reviews (1)
Houston, TX |
I had carpal tunnel release surgery on both hands last year. The nerve test, in my opinion, came back inconclusive; however the report still concluded that I showed "mild" carpal tunnel symptoms. Almost a year after the surgery, I have pain around the wrists, especially around the incisions. I have gone back to doctor repeatedly, and the only thing he says is that it could be inflammatory arthritis. But I had comprehensive blood work done by a rheumatologist to rule out any autoimmune disease.
