If you face persistent problems post-surgery, this may be due to issues related to the surgical method itself.
One, the scar tissue formed post-surgery could be causing the compression of your nerve.
Two, post-surgical swelling may also be causing further compression. If these do not resolve over time and are causing persistent symptoms, visit your orthopaedic surgeon to discuss a revision surgery.
It is also likely, though rare, a surgical fault has occurred and your nerve was compromised post-surgery. However, symptoms tend to worsen in such cases. Being aware and alert is important to ensure abnormalities post-surgery do not go unnoticed.
