24 hours later, and still numb??
So I did my implantation yesterday. First time with lido. I injected .5ml on one side, then .5ml on the other. However, the second side was far too shallow, and wasn't getting numb, so I used another . 5ml on the second. I then waited a few, and added 1ml to the fingertip away from the injection site. I had some difficulty with the tourniquet as well, so spent a good deal of time tugging on the rubber band. Anyway, it numbed up fine, and the procedure went cleanly, but 24 hours have passed and the entire ring finger is still quite numb.
Looking around online, it seems that that is a thing that happens with lidocaine and nerve blocks from time to time. Apparently it almost always goes away on its own and without any permanent effect , although the reports of how long it takes vary. Wondered if anyone around here had any knowledge or experience on the effect. Thanks.
