Patient : I recently had shoulder arthoscopy for impingement, frozen shoulder,scar tissues, torn labrum, and a rotator cuff tear. Since the surgery, 7 weeks, I have had numbness in the thumb, and fingers of my affected hand. It sometimes extends into the palm. The surgeon diagnosed it as carpal tunnel however, I had no symptoms before my surgery.
