Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

carp Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 1
Do you experience pain or tingling in your fingers? Are you feeling numbness or decreased sensation in one or both hands? Do you find yourself having trouble gripping or pinching? Is this affecting your sleep?
You may have carpal tunnel syndrome if you have any of these symptoms. The thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers are the most commonly affected. You may also have ulnar nerve compression which leads to numbness & tingling in the little and ring fingers. Nerve compression, if left untreated, ultimately leads to weakness of muscles of the hand causing muscle wasting and functional problems.
s10 Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 3 Your first step to having a Carpal Tunnel Surgery is to schedule an appointment with Dr Khan at West Coast Plastic Surgery. Get your GP to send us a referral to apply for a Medicare rebate for your consultation (special conditions apply from Medicare). You can also contact us by phone at 0862303041 or by fax at 0862303042. Alternatively, you can send an email to admin@westcoastplasticsuregry.com.au. sticsuregry.com.au. A team member will get in touch with you to book your appointment, and you can ask any questions you may have. Carpal tunnel syndrome is treated primarily with surgery. Steroid injections and splints can be done with ultrasound guidance in the early stages of injury, but the surgery cannot be avoided in most cases.
s10 Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 5 You can expect some swelling, numbness, and discomfort during the healing process. Dr Khan will provide you with specific post-operative instructions. The initial healing of your wound may take between ten to fourteen days. Our clinic will remove the dressings from surgery in a week and the sutures in two weeks. As long as you have bandages on your hand and are in pain, you should not drive. Your pain can be managed effectively with surgery. In case of pain, you’ll be prescribed medication accordingly. To reduce swelling, apply ice packs regularly during the first few days after surgery. Elevate your wrist for the first five to seven days by resting it on two to three pillows at night. Eventually, the swelling and bruising, if any,will go away.
