The wrist, while small and compact, is a complicated joint connecting 2 forearm bones with 9 small carpal bones to 5 hand bones. It is a complex system of articulating surfaces, supported by a network of restraining ligaments. It is a masterpiece of evolutionary development that h...

It sounds like you injured your thumb quite abit. If it’s persistently pain and swollen, and numb/ tingling, it could indicate some damage to the nerves supplying the thumb. I think you should seek an opinion from a doctor soon, to allow a proper and thorough examination...

I'm sorry to hear that you are still symptomatic after your surgery. It is certainly unusual for you to have symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome in both hands at the same time. As you are already seeing both a neurologist and a hand surgeon, I am sure a variety of tests were...
