I had a replacement right hip operation just over 6 weeks ago and was using elbow crutches. After a few days my hands began to hurt although I had put padding on the handles. I was obviously putting too much weight on the crutches. After 2 weeks I stopped using the right crutch as my hand was so painful and I thought my hand would return to normal. I cannot feel my little finger or the one next to it on both hands (right hand is worst) but if I touch the fingertips I get what feels like an electric shock. I can't lift or grip anything. I mentioned this to the consultant who said it seemed like nerve damage and would eventually get better. I saw my GP who gave me Movelat gel to rub in, that has had no effect whatsoever. Any suggestions?
