Numbness or tingling in fingers after surgery
Your ring finger (outer side only) and small finger are innervated by the ulnar nerve. Your thumb, other fingers, and the inner side of your ring finger are innervated by the median nerve. Check out your ring finger and notice the difference between inner and outer, or medial and lateral sides. Chances are that your ulnar nerve in your arm got stretched a little while your arms were outstretched on arm boards while you were in surgery. This is not uncommon at all and usually goes away within a few weeks. Hope this helps..

Also, as you heal, the area may feel “lumpy” and irregular. This, too, decreases with time, and massaging these areas will help soften the scar tissue. The #compression garment helps reduce the swelling, and the longer it is worn, the more quickly you will #heal. It can also assist in the retraction of the skin. If you have any concerns about #healing, its best to ask questions of your surgeon or their nursing staff.
