Hand Surgery Recovery
Generally, it takes 2 to 4 months for full recovery after hand surgery; a few months are typically required to return to all normal activities. A common issue everyone runs into after surgery is swelling and inflammation which then can lead to pain and discomfort. The most important thing to remember is RICE:
This should start immediately after surgery and continue for 3 to 7 days after swelling has gone down. This at-home therapy will also help with any pain one may encounter during their recovery.
