About Trigger Finger

Trigger Finger is also known as Carpal tunnel syndrome. Trigger Finger is a set of symptoms that arises due to compression of the median nerve at the wrist. The median nerve supplies sensation to the thumb, index, middle and part of the ring finger.

Signs and symptoms of Trigger Finger

  • Weakness in your hand and trouble holding things.
  • Numbness, tingling, and pain in your thumb and the first three fingers of your hand.
  • Wrist pain at night that interferes with sleep.
  • Shock-like feelings that move into your fingers.

Early on in the condition, shaking out your hands might help you feel better. But after some time, it may not make the numbness go away.

In the morning, you may wake up with numbness and tingling in your hands that may run all the way to your shoulder. During the day, your symptoms might flare up while you’re holding something with your wrist bent, like when you’re driving or reading a book.

As Trigger Fingere gets worse, you may have less grip strength because the muscles in your hand shrink. You’ll also have more pain and muscle cramping.

Preparing For Your Basal Cell Cancers Surgery

Before you have your surgery, there are a few preparation tips that we recommend. These will help you through your recovery. You should avoid drinking other beverages, like soda, juice, or milk. It is important to follow your surgeon’s pre and post-op advice as this is specific to you.

How long is the recovery from Trigger Finger Surgery?

After the surgery, your stitches would be taken out around 10 days of surgery. It would probably take about 6 weeks for your finger to heal completely. Your stiffness and soreness might go after 4 to 6 months. If you still have pain after the surgery, your doctor would recommend you to do hand exercises or physical therapy. If you can do your job without using the hand, you can also go back to work after 1 or 2 days of surgery.

Post Operative Activities

  • Please refer to the hand therapy exercise sheet for patients who have undergone carpal tunnel decompression. The fingers must be kept moving to decrease swelling and patients should observe a 6 week rest period from sport and heavy lifting. Normal activities, such as driving, may be resumed as soon as you are comfortable.
  • Your wrist will likely be in a heavy bandage or a splint for 1 to 2 weeks. Then the bandage and stitches are removed. Patients may be referred to physical therapy to improve stiffness and restore range of motion.
  • After 2-4 weeks Patients gradually resume activity in the affected hand. You’ll probably have pain in your hand and wrist after surgery. It’s usually controlled with pain medicines taken by mouth. The surgeon may also have you keep the affected hand elevated while sleeping at night to help decrease swelling.
  • After 6 to 8 weeks Patients should be back to nearly full daily life and sporting activities, but still will feel some soreness in the palm to deep pressure or touch. Nighttime symptoms improve, but there may still be some numbness in the fingers.
  • Trigger finger release surgery is a low-risk procedure with high success in quickly relieving nighttime and neurological symptoms. Numbness, coordination, and strength in the hand gradually improves over several weeks and months and may improve up to or beyond a year from the surgery.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

I had three procedures done with Mr Siddiqui, lip lift, breast implants and labiaplasty. I did a lot of research into surgeons and Mr Siddiqui stood out to me online he has a great profile and amazing reviews. My first consultation went really well, I was completely at ease, Mr Siddiqui explained everything thoroughly. A few weeks later I was in hospital having my procedures done, I was very well looked after and everything went smoothly. The aftercare was great. Between appointments Mr Siddiqui was only a WhatsApp or text message away, he was in touch everyday to begin and if I had any concerns he always replied quickly. I’m 6 weeks on from my procedures now and I am healing well and feeling great. I am very happy with my results. I can’t recommend Mr Siddiqui enough.

So glad I chose Dr Siddiqui, after searching for a qualified surgeon he stood out from the rest! He sounded perfect for my breast reduction. When I went for my consultation he made me feel at ease and explained everything very clearly. He was so nice and suggested a size that would suit my frame. His secretary Rachel, clinic team and staff were also very nice! Surgery went really well. Dr Siddiqui gave me his mobile number to text or call if I needed anything. The morning after surgery he messaged me to see how I was, which I thought was lovely. My recovery was really good, I was back at work a week later. I am very pleased with the result, just love my new size. Dr Siddiqui is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT TRIGGER FINGER SURGERY

When the median nerve is compressed at the wrist the most common symptoms are those of pins and needles and numbness in these digits of the hand. Patients quite often wake up at night and have to either elevate the hand or shake it vigorously until the tingling subsides.

In a significant number of patients is not possible to identify an obvious cause for median nerve at compression and in these cases carpal tunnel syndrome is regarded as being idiopathic.

Early symptoms in mild carpal tunnel syndrome may respond to rest, activity modification, splinting or an injection into the carpal tunnel to reduce the inflammation around the median nerve.

Surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome is called carpal tunnel decompression and can be carried out under local anaesthetic or occasionally under general anaesthetic. It involves a small incision in the palm through which a tight ligament causing pressure on the median nerve is released. A few fine sutures are placed on the skin and a dressing is applied which supports the wrist.

Just like any other operation, carpal tunnel decompression can result in problems such as bleeding, infection or delayed healing of the wound. Depending upon the severity and duration of the problem, the symptoms may not disappear completely or may improve significantly and then recur.

Most patients regain reasonable mobility between 2 and 4 weeks after the operation but it takes longer to regain grip strength and power in the hand.

This procedure only requires a local anaesthetic, which means that the area being operated on is numb and you are awake for the approximately 45 minutes that the surgery takes.

After trigger finger surgery, you might experience some pain, swelling and soreness for several days. You also might experience slight numbness or tingling near the incision site. At initial stage you might have difficulty in moving the finger but this will improve in a few weeks. You should be gentle with your movements at first but after 1 to 2 weeks you can do full movements.

If your finger joint is hot and inflamed, you should immediately seek medical help without delay as it may point to an infection. Delaying treatment can make your symptoms and pain more severe. Nonsurgical treatments including resting the hand for three to four weeks by not doing activities that require repetitive motion.

Trigger finger surgery is an outpatient procedure. This surgery is done while you are awake. The whole operation takes about two hours and requires that you avoid food the day of surgery. The doctor uses local anesthesia to numb your hand and prevent pain during the surgery. Your surgeon will also give you pain medication to help you relax.
