Dr DeCamp did my surgery... carpel tunnel and sequel veins roughly 6 years ago. Since then I have started having issues.... tendon issues, bubbles in the skin near where he did my surgery. A month ago he tells me too wear a brace a night if it bothers me and do hand excersizes. Yesterday he tells me after spraining it and hurting the tendons wearing the brace is bad and because I have no PT visits due to insurance he can't do anything. He didn't even TRY to see what's really wrong!

He has bad bed side manners & if you still have problems after the carpal tunnel surgery he will not look into what other issue's can be causing you the pain.
