Thank you for your question.Sorry to hear about your problem.Carpal tunnel nerve, i.e. the median nerve, can be repaired but it all depends on the degree to which it is damaged.Have you consulted a neurologist or neurosurgeon for this?Have you had any tests like a nerve conduction study done?Is it only your sensations in your hand that is affected or your movements of your fingers are also affected?Do you have any other medical problems?Are you on any medications for anything?Please let me know.Kind regards
