I had trigger finger surgery two weeks ago, got the stitches out today and was sent immediately to PT. I was given a set of exercises, a strap thing to hold my fingers bent, a couple of splints to make them straighten, and some cream to rub into the scars with instructions.
I had pretty bad pain spasms every time a stitch pulled before they were removed, or at least that's what I thought was happening. Stitches out, still pulling! Ouch and double ouch!
Nobody tells us before surgery that there is a bunch of recovery stuff! It's not on the websites either, and I read a lot of them, watched some videos to see what was going to happen. I'm no wimp either! The only anesthesia I didn't refuse was the local. I really wanted to watch. If I had been expecting this I wouldn't complain. In fact, I'm not complaining about pain, just that I was not informed.
Is this going to go on for a long time?
