I had a trapeziectomy {removal of a small bone at the base of the thumb}last Tuesday 8th March. I expected some pain after anaesthetic wore off which Idid experience for a couple of days then all seemed to be well until 1 week after I started having throbbing pains in my palm and at the base of my thumb with pins and needles at times. I now have a constant ache. Neither my thumb or my fingers or thumb are swollen. Can anyone shed any light on this, I am in a heavily padded dressing which wont be removed for another week when stitches are removed. Any advice would be much appreciated. Hospital are useless!
