I definitely think you should go back to your hand surgeon- even if the swollen joint may not be related to your previous operations. It could be some overuse- arthritis, but that is mere speculation on my part. You need your doctor to have a look and do the appropriate tests/x-rays etc. If the pain goes away over weekends or when you don't use the mouse at all, it could very well be that you are over using it at work.
