Re: Recuperating after surgery
What has your doctor indicated for you to be doing post surgery?
My doctors had a list of do's and don'ts and the last one told me not to be picking anything heavier than a cup of coffee with the hand that had had surgery, for 3 weeks post op. I had open release, if that makes a difference as to type of surgery....did you have a laproscopy type surgery?
I also started physical therapy about a month..or maybe it was 6 weeks post surgery to gain strength and keep scar tissue from adhering in surgical site ( tendon and nerve gliding exercises) After the first surgery on my left hand, I couldn't clap my hands because of the pain...and I still don't. I think it is because of scar tissue more in palm end of incision, so if I move my thumb or a finger, the rest get a twinge of pain too.
