Ask Trevor CHT: Thumb pain after CTS surgery
"I've had carpal tunnel surgery and now I have terrible debilitating pain at the base of my thumb in the carpal bones. Any ideas?"
"Pain at the base of the thumb and palm is pretty common after carpal tunnel surgery. It’s known as “pillar pain” and should resolve over and should resolve within 2-6 weeks after surgery.
If pain persists past this point you would probably do well to consult with your surgeon."
