The pain and numbness came after the second surgery. And they did a procedure to see if I had a pinch nerve that was causing it.but there was no pinch nerve. I see my primary doctor this week I was going to ask her for another doctor to look at this. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.

You're welcome. Numbness can also happen if they accidentally cut a nerve in surgery or the surgery itself cuts a nerve and couldn't otherwise be done. My husband had some melanoma on his hand and surgery to remove it that took all the skin layers down to muscle and bone. His pinky finger is numb on the outside half, since that nerve was probably removed with the tissue they took, but with cancer surgery, you do what you have to do.
